  • Menopausal Symptoms
  • Post Natal Depression
  • Asthma

What to expect from treatment


A large number of neurological and musculoskeletal disorders induced by stress are being successfully treated by acupuncture. According to World Health Organization data, the following list of disorders relating to stress can be effectively treated by acupuncture:

• Headache and migraine
• Trigeminal neuralgia
• Paralysis following stroke
• Meniere's disease
• Neurogenic bladder dysfunction
• Nocturnal enuresis (bed wetting)
• Intercostals neuralgia (pain in ribs)
• Cervicobrachial syndrome (pain radiating from neck to arm)
• Frozen shoulder or tennis elbow
• Sciatica
• Low back pain

Acupuncture is also applied for treating chronic pain associated with dysfunction of immune system such as psoriasis (skin disorders), allergies, and asthma as well as in the treatment of disorders such as alcoholism, addiction, smoking, and eating disorders world over.

The principle here is to clear the blocked energy in the muscles and nerve channels, as well as facilitating the flow of fresh energy (extra in-flow of oxygen) in them. This ensures relaxation of muscle and mind, and relief from stress and tensions.
