How Acupuncture Works on Pain:

Acupuncture increases circulation by moving the blocked “Qi” or energy. This improved circulation brings blood and nourishment to the injured area.

How Acupuncture Works on Inflammation:

Pain is relieved by stimulating acupuncture points. This prompts nerve fibers in the extremities to communicate with the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland (at the base of the brain).


How Many Visits Will I Need?

The amount and frequency of treatments depends on many factors. Each individual is different and therefore responds differently.

Main determining factors:

  1. How long the pain/ condition/ disease has lasted

  2. Age of the Patient

  3. Overall Health of the Patient

  4. Lifestyle of the Individual

  5. The Compliance Level of the Patient with regard to Practitioner Recommendations

Each patient is an individual with an individual body constitution. Therefore, individuals will respond at different rates according to the above-mentioned factors.
