You don't need a disease diagnosis to benefit from acupuncture. Acupuncture is a preventive medicine and is a wonderful part of a healthy lifestyle in addition to healthy eating and exercise. 

In our modern world many people think of acupuncture when they have physical pain, but it can help with any aspect of the human body from the physical to the emotional and spiritual level as well.

For thousands of years Chinese Medicine was used as a stand-alone complete system of medicine and therefore gynecology, dermatology, gastroenterology, orthopedics, etc. are built in to Chinese Medicine theory.
