Principles of Acupuncture + What We Can Do
Chinese Medicine is a full medical system that can treat everything. Just like other medical systems, we have our strength and weaknesses. One of our strengths lies in being able to treat many symptoms and diseases at the same time, since we see the body as a whole. Our perspective tends to be holistic or web like. Pull on any strand in a web, and it will affect all parts of the web. •When you get an acupuncture treatment for elbow pain, your elbow pain will subside but it’s also likely that you’ll see improvements in other areas. The headaches will get better, you’ll have more energy, you’ll be better able to handle stress, and you’ll sleep better. Pretty good stuff I tell ya!
