Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is about taking control and remaining in control over your own happiness, realising there is a choice. And understanding that whatever you think, eat and do will affect your health.
Acupuncture and cupping are only two of many treatments offered within TCM, and Acupuncture aims to aide in achieving balance and helping the body help itself. It is generally advised to undergo a series of treatments.
Normally after 3-6 treatments the practitioner can have a clearer picture of where the treatment is going. It is not unusual that patients with chronic conditions or a stressfull lifestyle will need to return once a month once the symptoms have eased.
Each person is different, and a practitioner can only advice. It is a shared responsibility between patient and practitioner. Although some physicians and patients tend to be skeptical about the effectiveness of many TCM practices, research continues to show that complementary modalities can make a big difference in many patients’ quality of life.
