This week is acupuncture awareness week and so we’re dispelling some commonly held myths about this treatment technique.
Myth If I don’t feel results after one or two treatments, then I’m not going to benefit from acupuncture.
Reality Individuals respond to acupuncture in different ways. Some people respond quickly within one or two sessions. Others need a full course of 6-8 sessions. The effects of acupuncture are cumulative, building with each treatment. Acupuncturists use a variety of techniques, so if you do not see results with one technique, then the acupuncturist may choose a different technique the subsequent time.
