What kinds of conditions can acupuncture treat?

The beauty of acupuncture is its emphasis on treating the individual as a whole.  Acupuncture doesn’t just treat the disease, but also the underlying unique pattern that develops in each person. For example, there may be six people being treated for lower back pain, but each patient would be receiving a different treatment based on their constitution and other life factors. This makes for a unique and customized treatment for any type of condition and individual.
