 -  Allergic hayfever -  Chemo-induced nausea & vomiting  -  Chronic low back pain

-  Headaches -  Knee osteoarthritis -  Migraines

-  Post-operative nausea & vomiting - Post-operative pain.

There is also MODERATE evidence showing acupuncture to be effective in 37 conditions including:

anxiety & depression;  constipation & IBS;  insomnia; menopausal symptoms; sciatica; neck, shoulder, elbow & jaw pain.
