Who can benefit from acupuncture?
In my practice I treat children and adults of all ages, from young children to elderly adults. I work with patients with acute problems such as sinus infections and sports injuries to chronic issues such as asthma, back pain, weakened immune function or recovery from long illness. Many of my patients consider acupuncture their "health maintenance organization," because they find that acupuncture and Chinese medicine allow them to maintain a state of vibrant health.
