What does acupuncture treat? Here’s a snap shot of a week in my practice

Cara O. Frank, L.OM.

This morning there was a nice infographic on my Facebook feed on 10 ways acupuncture can help. Since I’ve been in practice for 33 years, it’s easy for me to forget that not everyone is familiar with acupuncture and herbs. 

I realized that many people may not know how effective acupuncture and herbal  treatment is for a wide range of conditions. I was inspired to share with you a short list of some of the conditions that I’ve treated this week. It’s not meant to be comprehensive.  If you’re wondering if acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help you, give us a call at 215-772-0770, or schedule yourself online with all our skilled acupuncturists. We’re here to help!

Best Acupuncture & herbalist in Philadelphia – I went to see Cara with so many problems. I was having women issues, GI stomach problems, recovering from a Mercury Detox and just an overall feeling of BLAH. Cara brought me back to health with herbs and acupuncture. After getting healthy, I became pregnant and went back to her because I was a day late and fearful of getting induced. She naturally induced me and that night I gave birth. I have also had Cara do NAET on both my baby and myself. We both had soy allergies and today, I drink soy milk. Before when I would drink soy milk, the baby would get cradle cap but now..he has no reaction after I eat soy. I think she is great.
