In Ancient China, Korea and Japan, Acupuncture and Herbs were the sole forms of medicine. Acupuncturist and Herbalist were considered the go-to occupation for young scholars for many centuries.
Modern research is starting to catch up with what the East has always known. There is now very good evidence for the treatment of many conditions with Acupuncture and new research is coming in all the time.
In my clinic, it is a diverse group who come for treatment. Musculoskeletal forms the majority of what I see. But I also see many elderly patients, pregnant women, and tired and stressed office workers.
I don’t treat Weight loss, Smoking or Cosmetic Acupuncture.
