Many people turn to acupuncture for help to relieve pains like non-specific lower back pain, osteoarthritis of the knee and tension-type headaches. Others use acupuncture because they feel generally tired and unwell but have no obvious medical diagnosis.
Acupuncture can be used as a preventative measure to maintain health or to improve a sense of general well-being. Many patients return to acupuncture because they find it beneficial and relaxing.
