acupuncture on woman's backThough patients and practitioners most commonly think of acupuncture as being effective for pain syndromes, aches and pains, and sports medicine, in my practice, I have found acupuncture to be effective for a surprising variety of conditions. Among these are allergies and asthma, insomnia and depression, migraines, digestive disturbances, menopausal and menstrual problems. (In traditional Chinese medicine, this is not surprising at all. Pain is a manifestation of a blockage or imbalance in the meridians. But the reason the body has not healed itself is because of a disturbance at a deeper level. So in needling the meridians, you change the deeper level, also.)
