What can acupuncture treat?
The emphasis of Classical Japanese Acupuncture is on treating the person and not the symptoms or ailments. The aim is to find and treat the root cause of your condition and to treat you as a unique individual.
Acupuncture is traditionally used to strengthen immunity and build up a person’s ability to deal with illness by developing a tolerance or resistance.
Acupuncture can help people experiencing a broad range of conditions including:
Neurological conditions such as headaches, migraines, strokes and sleeping difficulties.
Cardiovascular disorders such as high or low blood pressure, fluid retention, chest pain, poor circulation and muscle cramps.
Respiratory conditions such as bronchial asthma, bronchitis, tonsillitis, sinusitis, sore throat, influenza, coughs and colds.
Digestive system disorders such as toothache, ulcers, colitis, diarrhoea, constipation, heartburn, haemorrhoids, liver and gall bladder disorders and weight control.
Urogenital disorders such as nocturnal enuresis, neurogenic bladder dysfunction, prostatitis, low sexual vitality, urinary retention and kidney disorders.
Gynaecological and obstetric disorders such as premenstrual tension, irregular periods, disorders associated with menopause, difficulty with conception and morning sickness.
Skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, nerve rash, herpes zoster, acne, scar tissue and hair loss.
Eye conditions such as visual disorders, conjunctivitis, simple cataracts and central retinitis.
