What is Acupuncture
It is an incredibly safe and effective way to improve overall health. The holistic treatment is based on the theory of meridians. According to this theory, Qi(vital energy) circulates in the body through a system of channels called meridians, connecting internal organs with external organs or tissues. By stimulating certain points of the body surface reached by meridians through fine needles or moxibustion, the flow of Qi can be regulated and diseases is thus treated.
What is the benefit to do the acupuncture
The benefits of acupuncture are widespread. Many of our patients report feelings of relaxation and improved energy. After a few times acupuncture treatments, most of our patients have great results. Acupuncture can also help you keep healthy, feel younger, improve circulation and boost your immune system.
How does Acupuncture work
We use very fine sterile disposable needles to insert into certain acupunture points(acupoints), normally the needles are left in the acupoints for about 30minutes then removed. While the needles are in the acupoints, you should have some special feelings like a little sore, tingling, pressure, numbness, burning sensation even a slight electric shock could be felt. Only when you have such feelings, it means the needles are more effective to treat the problems.
How long does it take to see results? How long each session
It mainly depends on patients' condition and how long they have it, how they may have treated it before. Generally speaking, for the acute conditions it will take less time than the others. It usually takes roughly 3-10 sessions. If the condition is very severe, it need more than ten sessions. For the acupuncture sessions, each of them needs about 45 minutes to 60 minutes or longer it depends on patients' situations. We recommand a 15-30 minutes consultation to estimate the condition and select proper treatment.
What should I do before and after treatment
Generally speaking, we need you have something to eat before treatment to prevent the very strong reaction during the treatment. After treatment, you need have a rest for about a few hours to let your body recover and respond.
