Acupuncture is simple and powerful. It helps the body return to balance. Often improvement occurs simultaneously among many conditions, not only the one for which you seek treatment.
The effects of acupuncture treatment usually include deep relaxation, a feeling of well being, and gradual reduction of the symptoms for which you came for treatment.
Negative side effects are rarely reported. Proper treatment seeks to reach the root causes of your illness, not only temporarily relieve the current symptoms, to create long lasting results.
I have found in my practice that patients arriving with wide ranging medical issues have responded positively to acupuncture treatment. Please seek a medical diagnosis from a physician if you are unsure of what condition you have. However, a physician referral is not required to obtain acupuncture.
Keep in mind that the sooner you are treated after the onset of symptoms, the faster acupuncture will likely resolve your complaint. If you have a chronic condition or have suffered for years, you will probably need to receive regular treatment over a longer period of time to achieve the best results, or to manage the condition.
