Many people come to an acupuncturist because they have tried every other treatment without success. Depending on how long and how severe your symptoms are will dictate the course of treatment required. Normally with acupuncture pain is the first symptom to disappear but just like putting a plaster on a wound the underlying condition that caused the pain will remain. With acupuncture we regard the reduction of symptoms as the beginning part of a person’s treatment. In order to reduce the recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue with treatment even though your initial symptoms are gone. This may require a course of weekly treatments, depending on how well you respond to the treatment, to obtain the best results.
Once your body has healed to the best of its ability, routine acupuncture can help ensure that your body continues functioning as well as it can. Regular treatments are a fantastic way of helping keep your body working efficiently. When you make acupuncture part of your regular health regime, you not only help reduce bodily aches and pains but also help reduce stress and anxiety from everyday life. This helps you to enjoy life to the full.
