Conditions commonly treated with Acupuncture

Chinese Medicine is one of the world’s oldest medical practices and has been used for more than 2000 years. Some of the earlier Chinese Medicine practitioners were responsible for ensuring the emperor stayed well and were only paid if the emperor was healthy and not ill, therefore it evolved into a medicine aimed at preventing disease and not just treating the symptoms.
