What conditions can be treated with acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been used for more than 2,500 years in China to treat a wide spectrum of injuries and illnesses.The World Health Organization (WHO) recognises over 100 conditions for which acupuncture is effective based on controlled research. Even though acupuncture’s efficacy has not yet been studied for all conditions, its treatment safety profile and low cost make it a reasonable option for many conditions even when efficacy has not yet been proven through clinical trials.
Plus acupuncture can also be performed even when a standard modern medical diagnosis is unknown or has not yet been established.

|Allergies & rhinitis||Diarrhoea||Hypertension||Pain|
