Conditions Treated

Acupuncture can treat and help manage a huge range of conditions. Although this is by no means an exhaustive list, here are some of the most common conditions we treat with acupuncture at ENCA:

  • Pain of any kind, including joint an muscle pain, back pain and neck pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraines, as well as tension headaches and other discomforts.
  • Women’s issues, including infertility, painful periods, menopause, and other gynecological issues.
  • Fatigue, including chronic fatigue syndrome, or a general feeling of being down.
  • Most conditions that respond to drug treatment respond even better to acupuncture and Chinese herbs, without side effects. 
  • Most chronic conditions such as allergies, asthma, and more respond extremely well to acupuncture.
  • Autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus are well controlled with a course of regular acupuncture maintenance treatments.
  • Conditions that don’t respond to conventional treatments are some of the best candidates for acupuncture.
  • Health problems with an emotional component respond extremely well because acupuncture treats body, mind and spirit. Disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, fibromyalgia, insomnia and migraines often flare up during times of stress. In fact, almost every medical condition encompasses both the physical and emotional aspects of a person. Acupuncture brings everything into balance!
