Acupuncturists treat the whole person, focusing on a pattern of disharmony rather than a disease itself. Because of this focus on the whole person, acupuncturists have success in addressing a broad range of conditions, many of which are difficult to treat with biomedicine alone.
The following is a partial list of general and women’s health conditions that may be significantly improved by therapy with acupuncture and/or herbs. In some cases, acupuncture and/or herbs may be an appropriate primary therapy; in others, they may be a valuable complement to other forms of care.
For more information regarding your particular needs, please contact WomanCare directly at (518) 288-8431.
