How does acupuncture work for Peripheral Neuropathy?
Acupuncture is effective in treating this condition by promoting and inducing the energy and blood circulation to the extremities. By improving the circulation, the nerve tissues of the affected area can be nourished to repair the nerve functions and reduce pain. Herbal therapy may be combined with acupuncture to achieve faster results.

Some cases take just a few sessions. Chronic and complex cases may need 10-15 sessions or more, depending on the individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
