Pain relief

The World Health Organization has issued a list of over 30 diseases, conditions, and disorders that lend themselves to treatment by acupuncture, including the following:


In the U.S. alone, millions of people of all ages suffer from some form of arthritis. Arthritis may refer to any of over 100 different types of conditions, including, but not limited to, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, gout, and celiac disease.

For centuries, countless patients worldwide have gained lasting relief from arthritis pain through acupuncture.


Circulatory Disorders
Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S. for both women and men. Aside from genetics, other factors such as hypertension, high cholesterol, and arteriosclerosis contribute to putting an individual at risk for heart attack. Acupuncture helps restore the body’s natural state of balance, and can assist in reducing and eliminating risk factors for heart disease.

Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders
Ear, nose, and throat issues are quite common in the general population. Sufferers of sore throats, ear aches, sinusitis, rhinitis, laryngitis, sleep apnea, vertigo and many other ailments have found acupuncture to improve and even eradicate their symptoms.


Gastrointestinal Disorders
For some people, heartburn is more than an occasional discomfort. It is an ongoing problem, affecting them on a regular basis. Acupuncture helps the body repair itself, and has been effective in helping people who have chronic heartburn and indigestion. In addition, acupuncture helps those seek relief from a food allergy, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, and colitis.


Gynecological Disorders
A variety of disorders specific to women may be successfully addressed through acupuncture, including menstrual irregularity, endometriosis, PMS, infertility, and post-menopause syndrome.


Musculoskeletal Conditions and Disorders
Many sufferers of tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, TMJ, low back pain, and other types of joint pain have found acupuncture to relieve their symptoms.


Psycho-emotional and Neurological Disorders
Depression, anxiety, insomnia, headache, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia, intercostal neuralgia, post-stroke paralysis, and a wide variety of other neurological conditions have been successfully treated with acupuncture.


Respiratory Disorders
It is estimated that adults have two to four colds a year on average, whereas children suffer from twice as many. In the U.S., over 60 million cases of the common cold occur annually.

Although there is no “cure,” acupuncture has alleviated the aggravating symptoms of those suffering from not only the common cold, but also influenza (flu), bronchitis, asthma, allergies, and emphysema.


Again, the above list represents only a few of the many disorders, conditions, and ailments that have been effectively treated through acupuncture. Over the years, we’ve helped thousands of patients in Charlotte achieve not only lasting natural pain relief, but also improved health through acupuncture.
