Acupuncture Therapy at MJO

Acupuncture therapy is a holistic therapy endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) for treating a variety of health conditions. It is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that involves the application of slim, one-time-use needles to specific areas, called acupoints.

  • Acute and chronic pain stemming from:
    • Osteoarthritis
    • Rheumatoid arthritis
    • Neck and back pain
    • Tendonitis
    • Sciatica
