- Why Choose Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is recognized as an effective treatment for almost all types of pain and many other health conditions. A several year long study by the National Institute of Health confirmed the effectiveness of acupuncture for a variety of conditions.
- Health Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an integral part of the Oriental Medicine System. For most people, the acupuncture experience is very relaxing, which in and of itself is an important health benefit considering the hectic life which most of us lead. But, in addition to this, acupuncture has been proven to be effective in the treatment of many conditions.
- What to Expect from Acupuncture Treatments
It is difficult to describe the acupuncture experience. It feels different to each individual, and the sensations may vary from treatment to treatment. Many people sense no pain at all. Some describe a mild discomfort or a "strange" feeling which is short-lived. For most, the overall experience is very relaxing.
- Length, Course and Frequency of Acupuncture Treatments
The length, course and frequency of treatments varies significantly from patient to patient. Some of the factors that influence this are the patient's age, how long the symptoms have been present and the overall health of the patient.
