FAQ: What can acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture is a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment system, so short answer… any symptoms you are experiencing, chances are we have a pattern of disease that they apply to.

That said, here at Mountain Phoenix, we have a few areas of specialty, including:
Psychological & Emotional Trauma
Pain Management
Autoimmune Issues
Geriatric Issues

If you are interested in how acupuncture may be able to help with your current situation, call us to schedule a free consultation. We offer a 15-30 minute phone consultation to all prospective patients for free.

What’s important to remember when looking for information about TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is that we treat TCM patterns of disease by balancing the body based on TCM diagnostics and treatment. We do not treat western diseases:  a single disease in the western diagnostic system can embody multiple different patterns in the TCM system.

There is a saying in Chinese medicine, “Many diseases, One treatment. One disease, Many treatments.”

This is to say, TCM treats the whole person, so whether you are experiencing the above, other issues, or a combination, we are happy to treat your whole person.

The World Health Organization issued a list of disorders that can be treated by acupuncture in 2004, but there are new studies happening all the time that show the efficacy of acupuncture for a myriad of physiological issues.  I also encourage you to do your own research in places like PubMed where there is continuously new research on eastern and western medicine, and the Mayo Clinicwhich is a good resource for understanding more about western disorders, but please remember that your research is not meant to substitute for the advice of your primary care physician or other health professionals.
