Directly below is a list of conditions that I regularly treat in my office:

 

Acupuncture has been effectively used to treat a large variety of conditions for more than 2000 years. In 2002 the World Health Organization (WHO) published an 81-page report in which they recommended acupuncture for various conditions based on their review of clinical trials. Below is a list of those conditions.

Sleep Disorders

Smoking Cessation

Sports Injuries

Stress

TMJ Syndrome

Traumatic Injuries

Weight Management

Gynecological Disorders

Headaches/Migraines

Hyper/Hypotension

Infertility - Male & Female

Musculoskeletal Pain

Skin/Dermatologic Disorders

Colds/Flu

Depression

Diabetes

Digestive Disorders

Eye & Ear Disorders

Fatigue

Fibromyalgia

Please note that while this list is fairly extensive, historically acupuncture and East Asian medicine has been shown to effectively treat far more conditions than these recommended by the WHO.
