What Does Acupuncture Treat and Who Comes for Treatment?

Since the focus of Five Element Acupuncture is to restore harmony and balance to our energetic system of the 12 organs, allowing the natural forces within us to do the most amazing healing possible, no condition, no illness, no disease should be excluded from the realm of acupuncture's possible effectiveness. Treatment is useful for patients of any age or condition, ranging from children to the elderly, well or seriously ill.
