How Can Acupuncture Benefit Me?


Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine
work very well for the vast majority of people. Together with western medical diagnostics, Americans have a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the benefits of both.


In fact, most patients who go through the prescribed process for a course or two of treatments find that most of their various problems start to clear up. Sleep improves, stamina increases, appetite is moderated, blood pressure corrects, headaches improve or disappear completely. This is the result of the "self-regulating & self-healing" properties of the human body.  When "properly tuned-up", the body is an amazing "self-healing machine".

 

Treatment Plans consist of a number of sessions required to change the body's various "dysfunctions" .Generally, 3 - 4 sessions are needed to "stabilize an issue". The more serious the issue, the more frequent the treatments and the more treatments will be necessary to make lasting results possible. After a few sessions, we will have an "Assessment Meeting". At that time, we will discuss your progress and your desire to continue, as well as your longer-range goals. Additional sessions are usually needed based on severity of issues or the complexity of cases (chronic and/or multiple issues).

 

Six sessions is considered a "short course of treatment" and 12 sessions is considered one course of treatment. In most cases patients get enough relief from the first few sessions that they don't need to come back unless they reinjure or "over do it" soon after they start getting better. .
