Each patient carries his own doctor inside him.
~ Albert Schweitzer

As virtually all of our patients already know and many more people are discovering, acupuncture has proven to be highly successful in the treatment of many medical problems.

So successful, in fact, that the National Institute of Health (NIH) and World Health Organization (WHO) have documented numerous conditions that have been shown in clinical studies to be effectively treated with acupuncture.

At Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Center, we have the capability and experience to treat any of the following conditions with either traditional needle or magnet acupuncture treatments, or cold low-level laser acupuncture therapy via LightNeedle Laser, Blood Laser, LaserPen and Cluster Probe Laser.

Following is a list of some of the most common symptoms treated and relieved by this therapy:

Intestines: gas, bloating, pain, diarrhea
