Single Treatment VS a Course Treatment
Which do you choose?
The answer is - it's up to you!
For some problems, especially new problems, 1 session of acupuncture can be effective enough, for other more chronicle problems we recommend a course treatment of at least 5-6 sessions, and here's the reason why:
- Acupuncture helps opening up the blockage, the TCM believes all pain or illness comes from blockage, once the blockage is opened up, the pain or illness will be gone.
- Acupuncture heals the body naturally, it 'teaches' the body to learn to heal itself by correcting the CHI (energy level) and blood circulation. This is a gradual and long term process.
- Western medicine are effective because they are 'strong' in a sense that they are artificially made with different chemicals that works on the symptoms quickly, but not the cause, so we have to rely on them.
- Chinese herbal medicine and Acupuncture are completely natural with no side effect. Although it is a long term treatment, it is only effective if you take a series and continuous treatment. Doctors usually changes your treatment plan each week based on the individual's condition.
