Acupuncture has been used for over 5,000 years for acute, chronic ailments or as a preventive medicine. It views the body as a whole system and identifies where the imbalance lies, which causes the ailment. When the body is in balance, ailments are less likely to occur.
According to the 2009 report published by Society for Acupuncture Research, “Healthcare settings appropriate for integration of acupuncture are: post-surgical healing, neurobiological rehabilitation, pain management onsite and offsite, reproductive services and in oncology as an adjunct for the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, as well as anxiety. Acupuncture can be utilized as a support for outpatient services, treating an array of symptoms of many conditions.”
