Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture balances muscles, skeletal alignment, emotions, hormones, and circulation. These components of health are influenced by the ability of acupuncture to relieve tension. This includes tension in the neuroendocrine system, related to mental and emotional stress.
Because acupuncture treats tension that is at the root of disease, it is effective for many complaints.
Acupuncture is highlighted by the National Institute of Health (NIH)  or the World Health Organization (WHO) , or both, for treating the conditions listed alphabetically below. This list does not include all conditions that acupuncture treats.
