- How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites (referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints). The stimulation of these acupoints increases blood flow while at the same time triggers the activity of our own body's natural painkiller.
Heat (Moxibustion or/and Infra-red lamp), or Electrical stimulation (Electro acupuncture) may further enhance the effects.
- How many treatments will I need?
The frequency and number of treatments differ from person to person. Some people experience dramatic relief in the first treatment. For complex or long-standing chronic conditions, one to two treatments per week for several months may be recommended. For acute problems, usually fewer visits are required.
