Many conditions/dis-eases/syndromes/symptoms respond quite well to acupuncture and Oriental medicine. This list is concise and incomplete as it would be difficult to name every condition or dis-ease that Oriental Medicine can help with. Oriental Medicine is a complete, 6000+ year old health care system that can treat a myriad of illnesses.
Here are some of the conditions I am experienced in treating:
