WHAT ACUPUNCTURE TREATS

The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment for 43 common disorders. The list below encompasses both symptoms and diseases acupuncture can treat. This list is not complete–acupuncture often has surprising “side effects” of resolving other symptoms you aren’t seeking treatment for.
