Common Conditions We Treat With Acupuncture
FAQ's - acupuncture
We are not exaggerating when we say there are hundreds of conditions, disorders and diseases that acupuncture can effectively treat. Unfortunately, due to the fact that all conditions are unique and specific to the individual, there is no clean-cut answer whether your specific condition will benefit from acupuncture treatments. In order to find out if your specific condition is treatable through acupuncture, you will need to have a complete acupuncture exam done by a certified and experienced practitioner. He or she will be able to determine and diagnose the underlying causes of your condition based on your symptoms and unique medical history. The practitioner will then be able to tailor a treatment to the uniqueness of your condition. He or she will also be able to recommend if you would benefit from another alternative treatment such as ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ and Functional Medicine, as well. See list of conditions treatable at our acupuncture treatment center in Fountain Valley serving the greater Huntington Beach area.
