Conditions Treated

In Chinese medicine, no symptom is considered to be unimportant or foolish. You may be consulting for an inconvenient symptom without suffering from an illness that requires complex medical treatment. On the other hand, acupuncture can give back quality of life for certain chronic and greatly handicapping conditions amongst which some autoimmune diseases for which occidental medicine has reached its limits. In such cases, one should think “complementarity”.

As a front-line health worker, having received basic training in occidental pathology, I consider my duty to refer you to an emergency room or to a doctor if a problem requires more thorough investigation.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of conditions which can be treated with acupuncture including gynecological pathologies, pregnancy and female fertility to which I am particularly interested:
