Benefits of Acupuncture in Addiction Recovery
After completing an effective addiction treatment programme, there are many ways acupuncture can bolster your long-term addiction recovery plan – as mounting research shows this ancient, low risk Chinese medical practice to have favourable effects on many of our body systems.
