Conditions Treated

In Chinese medicine’s terms, acupuncturists treat an imbalance of Qi, but in Western terms they treat hundreds of symptoms and conditions. The National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized acupuncture to be effective in the treatment of a wide variety of medical problems. In an official report, Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials, the WHO has listed the following symptoms, diseases and conditions that have been shown through controlled trials to be treated effectively by acupuncture:

Please note that there are plenty of additional conditions which centuries of empirical data have shown acupuncture treats effectively but for which there is little or no modern western research.
