The World Health Organization (WHO) list of conditions for which Acupuncture is effective?
The World Health Organization (WHO) has been responsible for controlled clinical trials of acupuncture therapy for a wide range of different medical conditions.
At the BODYHARMONICS School, we teach practical Acupuncture exactly as practised in China today.   Acupuncture is used for conditions that Tui Na alone would improve more slowly. Many patients are paranoid about acupuncture needles however, and being able to offer Tui Na in addition to acupuncture gives you another set of options.
