What does acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture is fascinating in that it appears to enhance some sort of innate healing response. We all self-heal to some degree. It happens so smoothly that it’s sort of hidden in plain sight. We observe our bodies quite naturally knitting themselves back together again after cuts, scrapes, bumps or bruises and our minds somehow re-organize after getting tossed about by emotional events.
But sometimes the situation exceeds what we can manage and we need medical intervention. Acupuncture is an established medical system that helps the body and mind heal without the use of drugs, surgery or unwanted side effects.
