Weight loss

If you’re struggling with your weight, you’re not alone. About 75% of adults aged 20 or older in the United States are either overweight or obese, and nearly 1 in 5 children and teens aged 2 to 19 face the same issue. As we grow older, maintaining a healthy weight becomes more difficult.

Pain Management

Back Pain

Low back pain is a pervasive issue in the US, affecting millions of individuals annually. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), it’s estimated that around 80% of adults will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. As a result of modern lifestyles and work habits, the impact of low back pain is widely felt across the nation.

Mental Wellbeing

Stress

Stress in modern life arises from today’s challenges and swift changes. It’s our mind and body reacting to outside pressures, upsetting emotional balance. These pressures come from work, relationships, finance, societal norms, and technology. Studies show many people experience it, emphasizing the need for coping methods to stay well.

Fertility

IVF Support

In the United States, approximately 7.3 million women aged 35–44 will undergo various fertility treatments, among which in vitro fertilization (IVF) stands as a viable option. Surveys suggest that anywhere from 8% to 47% of couples opt to include acupuncture in their IVF cycles. Studies have shown that acupuncture can significantly enhance outcomes, with an increase in the Cumulative Pregnancy Rate (CPR) by 28%–32%, the Ongoing Pregnancy Rate (OPR) by 42%, and the Cumulative Live Birth Rate (LBR) by 30%, compared to receiving no treatment.

Pain Management

Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder is characterized by underlying fibrotic processes affecting the capsuloligamentous structures. Its prevalence has been reported to range from 2% to 5% in the general population, particularly among individuals aged 40–60 years. Acupuncture offers several benefits for frozen shoulder, including reduced inflammation, alleviation of pain and modulation of pain responses, as well as improvements in shoulder stiffness, range of motion, and mobility.

Neurology

Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy (PN) refers to impairment of the peripheral nervous system due to a primary lesion or dysfunction. Its occurrence in the general populace varies between 1% to 7%, with increased incidence observed among individuals aged 50 years and above. Acupuncture for peripheral neuropathy effectively enhances blood circulation and activates the body’s neural networks, facilitating nerve regeneration and preservation.

Digestive disorders

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a complex digestive condition known for causing chronic abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel habits. Acupuncture has been studied as a non-drug treatment for IBS-related pain. It works by reducing inflammation, calming intestinal sensitivities, and blocking pain signals in the brain and spinal cord. Acupuncture also helps manage the emotional aspects of IBS. These findings support acupuncture as a useful addition to IBS treatment.

Pain Management

Migraine

Migraine is a very common type of headache that can seriously affect people’s health. Acupuncture has been proven to be a safe and effective non-drug option for treating migraines. Many studies, including systematic reviews and meta-analyses in evidence-based medicine, have shown that acupuncture is a safe and convenient treatment choice that works well for migraines. This makes it a promising option for consideration.

Mental Wellbeing

Primary insomnia

Primary insomnia (PI) affects 6-10% of the global population, causing trouble falling and staying asleep. PI can harm daytime functioning and increase the risk of mental health issues, like depression and anxiety. Recent high-quality trials have explored PI treatments.
Acupuncture aligns with a holistic approach to health. Studies show acupuncture can improve sleep metrics (total sleep time, efficiency, awakenings), especially with treatments lasting over 3 weeks.

Neurology

Bell’s palsy

Bell’s palsy presents as a facial weakness or paralysis, typically on one side, with its cause often undetermined. Symptoms, which can develop over a few hours, include a drooping appearance on the affected side, altered saliva and tear production, and changes in taste. While some may fear it’s a stroke, when only the face is impacted, it’s more likely Bell’s palsy. In the U.S., there are roughly 40,000 new cases annually, with 1 in 60 people experiencing it during their lifetime.

 

Pain Management

Neck Pain

Neck pain is an increasingly prevalent concern in modern societies, with a substantial number of individuals reporting episodes each year. Studies suggest that up to 50% of the general population will experience neck pain in a given year, and nearly 70% of people will suffer from it at some point in their lives. Factors such as prolonged computer use, sedentary lifestyles, and poor ergonomic practices have significantly contributed to the rise in neck pain cases, making it a pertinent health issue in today’s digital age.

Mental Wellbeing

Anxiety

Anxiety, distinct from stress, is a unique psychological state. While stress arises from external challenges, like deadlines or chronic illnesses, anxiety is marked by ongoing unease without a clear trigger. Both can lead to symptoms like fatigue, muscle tension, and irritability, but anxiety is characterized by its persistent and often unwarranted worries, even in the absence of identifiable stressors.

 

Digestive disorders

Constipation

Constipation is a common problem, affecting around 20% of people, but the exact rate varies depending on the surveyed population. It’s more prevalent in women and the elderly, with studies showing that it becomes more common as people age, possibly reaching 80% in elderly care facilities.Research suggests that acupuncture can help with constipation by stimulating gastrointestinal movement, regulating gut hormones, and balancing nerve activity in the intestines. Acupuncture activates nerves that send signals to the brain, which, in turn, improve gut movement. Different acupuncture points can affect either sympathetic (inhibitory) or parasympathetic (stimulatory) nerves, influencing gut peristalsis.

Pain Management

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a persistent condition that causes widespread pain, tenderness, fatigue, and sleep difficulties. Its exact cause remains a mystery, but those with it are more sensitive to pain. While there’s no specific cure, healthcare providers can help manage and alleviate its symptoms. Typically, treatment includes a blend of exercise or movement therapies, medications and behavioral therapy, and Acupuncture. Studies involving both FM patients and animal models suggest that acupuncture may provide relief for FM symptoms by influencing pain pathways and certain molecules. It also appears to affect peripheral inflammation and the autonomic nervous system.

ENT Disorders

Tinnitus

Tinnitus is the perception of sound when there’s no external source. This persistent and often distressing condition can seriously affect a person’s quality of life, leading to issues like sleep disturbances, anxiety, and depression. It’s quite common, with 10-15% of the general population experiencing it, especially among older individuals. Acupuncture is becoming more popular as an alternative therapy sought by many tinnitus patients. Some clinical guidelines for tinnitus treatment have already recognized acupuncture as a potential option.

Immune System

Immune Homeostasis

Immune homeostasis is a balanced state in our immune system that keeps us healthy and prevents autoimmune diseases and cancer. Current drugs can either boost or suppress the immune system, which can lead to side effects.Acupuncture, however, seems to have a unique ability to balance the immune system in both directions. When the immune system is weak, like in cancer, acupuncture can strengthen it. When it’s too active, like in autoimmune diseases, acupuncture can calm it down.Studies shows how acupuncture achieves this bidirectional regulation by affecting various immune cells and restoring balance. This suggests that acupuncture could be a promising way to treat diseases by bringing the immune system back into balance.

Pain Management

Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a common condition causing pain on the outer part of the elbow. It often affects people aged 40 to 50 and is linked to repetitive strain on the wrist extensor muscles, particularly the extensor carpi radialis brevis, which leads to inflammation. While it usually improves within 6 to 12 months, many people still experience pain even after a year, impacting their overall quality of life.

Dermatitis

Eczema

Atopic eczema (AE) is a common skin condition that causes inflammation, itching, and recurring outbreaks with oozing sores. It affects about 20% of children and 1%-3% of adults. The main symptoms include itching, dry skin, and thickening of the skin.Many patients and caregivers believe that managing symptoms well can significantly improve the quality of life, and acupuncture is now recognized as an effective alternative treatment for reducing itchiness.

Auricular Acupuncture

Ear acupuncture, also known as auriculotherapy, was formally established by French physician Paul Nogier in 1957 when he published “Auricular Reflections of the Fetus in the External Ear” in the German Acupuncture Journal. This groundbreaking work introduced a precise map of ear acupuncture points that resembled an inverted fetus. Nogier’s contributions quickly spread throughout the German acupuncture community. Later, he further expounded on this therapy with his publication “Treatise of Auriculotherapy.” Nogier’s pioneering research and development of auriculotherapy significantly influenced and expanded the modern practice of ear acupuncture worldwide.
