Acupuncture is a process.
It is not a realistic expectation for you to think that we will be able to resolve a problem (especially one that you’ve had for some time) with only one treatment.
- Signs and symptoms appear when your body’s normal function is impaired, signaling a growing imbalance. These imbalances can increase in severity before it becomes apparent that something is wrong. This is one of the best reasons to receive regular treatments, to identify and resolve imbalances when they are easier to reverse.
- The typical treatment protocol for a chronic condition could be to get acupuncture every other day for several months! Most of our patients don’t need that much, but almost all patients require a course of treatment, as opposed to just one to get the desired results they want from acupuncture.
- If you come for treatment often enough and long enough, acupuncture will probably work well for you.
Acupuncture treatments are most effective when they are simple, frequent and regular. This point cannot be overemphasized: Getting the desired results depends on you coming often enough to help your body heal. We need you to commit to the treatment process in order to get good results.
