What does acupuncture treat?
Hi! My name is Elaina Greenberg. I'm a licensed acupuncturist in Chinese herbalist down in Santa Monica, California. One of the most common questions I get is- what is acupuncture treat? Well the World Health Organization recognizes over 300 conditions that can be treated effectively by acupuncture. Most common in the office is I see patients who experience insomnia, pain, regardless of the etiology, so whether it be diabetic neuropathy or arthritis or migraine pain or sports injuries, any kind of asthma, allergies, gastrointestinal upset, as well as women's health, and menstrual disorders, fertility support, and menopausal support. In addition to all these various conditions acupuncture doesn't treat just the symptom it treats the underlying cause of it in the individual. It helps to restore balance between that physical, mental, emotional and spiritual element of all of us. An additional component to acupuncture is that it is extraordinarily effective in preventative care which is one of the most important parts of health care. If you have more concerns or other questions please give me a call at 310 740 7700 or feel free to look at my website at www.elainagreenberg.com.
