Conditions Treated

Most people in the Western world think of acupuncture when it comes to treating pain, which it certainly does, but that's just a tiny fraction of what TCM has to offer. Acupuncture and herbs can be used for a whole range of internal and external medicine conditions (the World Health Organization has published a list of over 140 conditions for which acupuncture has documented efficacy!).

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a way of looking at the whole person as a set of balanced and interrelated systems, so any type of condition or imbalance can be described in terms of a TCM diagnosis. It seems strange that sticking a needle in your leg can make your headache go away... until you know that there's an acupuncture meridian that runs from your toe all the way up to the side of your head!
