What Can Acupuncture Treat?

“Acupuncture is a powerful tool for general pain control and is widely known. Less known is its success used in some cancer-related pain and in reducing narcotic use and thereby minimizing the effects of confusion, mental disturbances, behavior changes, nausea and severe constipation.”
Eugene Mak, M.D., Oncologist, MARF Board Member

Acupuncture is recognized by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to be effective in the treatment of a wide variety of medical problems.

“I had to open my mind to other ways of thinking based on a concept of wellness rather than disease. You have to look at the body as an ally rather than an enemy, as something that needs nurturing and healing in order to support new growth.”
Randine Lewis, Ph.D
