The Cumulative Effect:

Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years for a reason. Typically, a series of 10-12 treatments is performed in a short period of time and what most people don’t know, is acupuncture gains the most effective results through cumulative and frequent treatments.
Most of the studies and research performed are based on the fact that acupuncture treatments are administered at least 2-3 times per week, if not daily, with breaks in courses of treatment. This has proven to be the most effective in acupuncture practice because it takes an accumulative effect on the body. You wouldn’t take one dose of antibiotics just once a week for 10 weeks or your nutritional supplement once a week to gain its beneficial effects…would you?

In China, acupuncture is practiced at least 2-3 times per week, if not daily, as mentioned above. In fact, most of the research and studies about the effects of acupuncture show that it is administered on a more frequent basis than once a week, especially for acute conditions.

Many of you are seeking acupuncture because you have found that other conventional or alternative treatments haven’t been working for you, or you cannot afford the expense of healthcare in the US. Maybe you’re interested in acupuncture because you’ve heard it works for your particular health concern...whatever the reason, I want to make it convenient and easy for you to seek acupuncture as a form of healthcare.

Your first visit will last approximately 90 minutes and will include a thorough assessment of your health history and condition and an acupuncture treatment. Your follow-up visits will consist of 45-60 minute treatments that may vary slightly from one another according to your personal diagnosis. Preventive maintenance treatments or follow-up courses of treatment are recommended and will be discussed after your first course of treatment has been completed.

I encourage people seeking acupuncture to consider the above mentioned course of treatment, because it is the most time-efficient and effective protocol.

Less time will be spent, and more dramatically effective results can be seen to see how acupuncture may benefit you with a commitment to this course of treatment. Wouldn’t you rather spend less time and less money to regain your wellness back?

Weekly, preventive, or maintenance acupuncture treatments are always available for those of you who would like to come in for periodic tune-ups. These visits generally last for about 45-60 minutes to address any new concerns and changes since your last treatment.
