Disorders Treated with TCM Therapy at Our Clinic

Practiced for over 3,000 years and now in more than 160 countries, TCM therapy is an accessible and affordable means of healthcare particularly in locations with limited access to "conventional" medicine. Since the therapeutic actions are achieved by mobilization of the organism's own potential, TCM therapy does not produce adverse effects, as do many drug therapies.

The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) estimated 3.1 million adults and 150,000 children in the US used acupuncture treatments in 2006. The World Health Organization (WHO) published reports in recent decades on findings that acupuncture has proven to be more effective than customarily drug treatments in controlled studies. Modern scientific research studies have revealed the
following actions of acupuncture:
  • Inducing analgesia
  • Protecting the body against infections
  • Regulating various physiological functions
Below is a list of disorders and conditions named in the WHO report which were effective with acupuncture treatments. Depending on each individual patient, we may recommend other TCM treatment methods to replace or complement acupuncture treatments in order to speed up recovery.
