Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been practiced for thousands of years. There are many uses and applications, including the treatment of arthritis, hip dysplasia, other degenerative diseases, kidney and liver problems, seizure disorders, allergic conditions, behavioral problems, and more. Acupuncture treatment is often combined with herbal formulas to obtain optimal results. Some conditions require continuation of conventional medications and some can be treated with holistic modalities alone. Most patients, as you can see, enjoy their treatment and are usually quite relaxed during and after.
