Your First Treatment

Receiving your first Acupuncture treatment

Acupuncture is a system that treats both symptoms and causes. Most health related problems are due to stress and lifestyle conditions, with the exception of injuries and/or accidents that cause physical damage to your body.
Our healthcare system has become a way of just treating symptoms however many people are not satisfied with taking medications and/or surgeries. When you choose to use a more natural method of healing it is important that you be willing to do your part. Your health is your responsibility and no one will ever know your body, mind, emotions and spirit better than you.

When you receive your first treatment, you may notice some IMPROVEMENT immediately. The length of time you have had the condition being treated will determine how quickly your body will recover. Chronic problems compromise your energy level and this can cause slower results. Remember that healing is a process that takes time to recover. An example is low back pain, if you have had chronic low back pain for three years it can take up to one year to completely recover.

It is important to give acupuncture a fair chance to help your particular problem. A minimum of three treatments is required before determining if the treatments will help with your condition. If you are not willing to commit to at least three treatments you should save your money or try another type of treatment. It requires time and patience to understand your complaints and treat them.

Patient compliance is also a very important part of the process. The closer you follow instructions, the quicker the improvement.
