It is estimated that as many as 38% of adult Americans have used or are currently using some form of complementary or alternative therapy such as acupuncture or Oriental Medicine. Acupuncture can effectively treat both acute and chronic conditions, from stress reduction, aches/pain, women’s health (menopause, PMS, irregular menses, infertility, and so forth), to digestive issues, sports injuries, sports enhancement, and emotional imbalances. It can also provide remedial and preventative care. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes over 200 conditions treatable with acupuncture.
“Many people turn to acupuncture when Western medicine yields no results,” says Stringer. “Our main objective is to get your body back in balance and assist you with reaching your health goals.”
