These days there is a lot of information about what can be treated by Acupuncture on the internet. Please follow the link below to find out what can be treated with Acupuncture? This is a list that was published by the World Health Organisation. (Unfortunately there are ‘health professionals’ out there who are sponsored by the pharmaceutical companies to do misleading research on Acupuncture and other Complementary therapies.
