CONDITIONS WE TREAT

When you get a diagnosis from your western medical doctor, you have something concrete to work with, but often that doesn’t solve the problem. Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AOM) uses a different paradigm to describe the human body. But in the end, both systems seek to heal.

The following list has been assembled to give you an idea of what eastern medicine addresses.
