A lot of people have acupuncture to relieve specific aches and pains such as osteoarthritis of the knee, headaches, low back pain and tennis elbow or for common health problems like an overactive bladder. Acupuncture can also be very helpful treating emotional disorders such as anxiety and stress.

Some pregnant women have acupuncture throughout their pregnancy and have found acupuncture effective for treating morning sickness and carpal tunnel syndrome.  Acupuncture can also be helpful for fertility support.  

Other people choose to have acupuncture when their body functions are out of balance, but they have no obvious diagnosis and many have regular treatments because they find it so beneficial and so relaxing.
