What Can Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Do For You?

Laith Naayem, Licensed Acupuncturist

There is very little it can’t do! The World Health Organization acknowledges that acupuncture has been proven to treat hundreds of conditions, from infertility to osteoarthritis. The National Institute of Health conducts and evaluates research on many forms of medicine, including acupuncture and Chinese herbology, and has concluded that it can treat physical problems such as back pain, sprained ankles, and frozen shoulder. It treats skin problems, such as itching, hives, rashes, and acne. It treats internal problems such as indigestion, asthma, and high blood pressure. It treats women’s problems such as PMS and infertility. It treats emotional and psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, grief, and insomnia.

Oriental medicine is holistic. I don’t just treat your problem, I treat you. If you have ‘tennis elbow’ that won’t go away, I might examine your spine, take your pulse, look at your tongue, ask about your diet, and even ask about your sleep habits! All of these will inform me how you, as a whole person, can heal, along with your tennis elbow.

From infertility to sciatica… from migraines to insomnia… from PMS to indigestion… from anxiety to sports injuries … it has been said that acupuncture fills in the gaps between other forms of medicine. At the Healing Arts Center, I use a strategic combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and oriental physical therapy to treat you for anything that is not an emergency.
