Acupuncture is effective as a preventative treatment for a number of conditions including:
- seasonal allergies
- colds and flu (low immune functioning)
- headaches and migraines
- fertility concerns
- re-injury of old musculoskeletal problems including low back, knee and shoulder strain
If one has scheduled an upcoming medical procedure such as surgery, radiation or chemotherapy, a course of acupuncture treatments leading up to the procedure will strengthen immune, digestive, reproductive, kidney and liver functioning. Strengthening the body in this way will reduce the side effects of the medical procedure, lower the risk of complications and speed up recovery time afterwards.
