ABOUT ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting and manipulating fine needles into various points on the body to relieve pain and treat a broad range of conditions. The World Health Organization (WHO) considers acupuncture to have been proven to many conditions including knee pain, back pain, depression, nausea, rheumatoid arthritis, and headaches.
Some people come to acupuncture as their first choice of health care while others find it beneficial alongside conventional medicine treatments and different treatments. Having gained increasing popularity in the West over the last three decades, many clinical trials, along with the experience of millions of patients, have validated acupuncture as safe, effective and a natural form of health care.
Being a holistic medicine, Acupuncture aims to treat the whole person rather than just the disease and attempts to work with the cause of the problem as well as the symptoms. The needles used are single-use, sterile, and disposable.
