Conditions Treated by Acupuncture

There are many conditions treated by acupuncture that you can receive the benefit of. Acupuncture creates a balance in the body that leads to a harmonious state we all call “health”. From back pain to infertility, many common complaints respond well to acupuncture.

Practitioners of Classical Chinese Medicine understand what constitutes great health care that differs fundamentally from the disease-oriented philosophy of western “modern medicine.” Rather than treating disease, we focus on creating health. At first, that may seem like a slight distinction, but we believe this difference in perspective can have a direct impact on how healthy you can become!

Below is a list, although not inclusive but diverse, with the conditions that might be standing between you and vibrant health.

Why Do People Seek Acupuncture?

  • People come to an acupuncturist seeking help with pain, poor sleep, depression, low energy and many other health conditions.
  • For many of them, they are coming for acupuncture as a last resort, after everything else they’ve tried has failed, in the hopes of regaining a better quality of life.
  • Others come in after hearing the success stories of friends or relatives who may have been treated for a similar condition.
  • If you are reading this, you are probably not in either group. You’re curious if this “acupuncture stuff” has at least a decent chance of helping you out.

The good news is that Classical Chinese Medicine is a complete system of health care to which most common complaints respond well.

Your health shows up in your self-esteem, your relationships with other people, the things you dare to go for in life, or even see as possible. Whether or not it is something you notice every day, illness, pain, imbalance and/or sub-par health profoundly affect your experience of life and the experiences of life of all of those around you. These effects ripple out. This is exactly why I chose to become an acupuncturist- so that together our ripple-effect can be the kind caused by health.

“I came to Jon-Erik with a sports related rotator cuff issue. The problem was compounded with a looming competition the following weekend that I just could not miss. Having never tried acupuncture before I didn’t know what to expect, and was admittedly skeptical. He listened to me, and was incredibly gentle, and caring. The treatment was a bit scary for me, but he calmed my fears, and got me through it. On the drive home, I realized I had regained some movement in my shoulder, and by the next morning, I felt even better. I’m 100% convinced that Jon is very talented, and practically performed a miracle in the office. Thank-you!”
