Any symptom of the body is a sign of energetic imbalance. Acupuncture works to rebalance the body’s energy and train the energy to be sustained in this balanced flow. This requires a series of treatments. Generally, the longer your imbalance has been going on, the more treatments it will take to achieve the results you desire.

Many people try all other methods of medicine before they finally resort to acupuncture. We would actually advise that you get in for acupuncture treatment as soon as possible. Here are a few classifications on duration of illness for acupuncture:

  1. Acupuncture works best when handling acute cases. The likelihood of being able to turn around an acute imbalance at its root cause is much greater.
  2. Chronic cases most often are “maintained” with acupuncture. This means that acupuncture will probably be needed over an undetermined period of time and the improvement will last as long as treatments are continued. We treat many clients with chronic diseases that western medicine has not been able to help.
  3. Acupuncture works well as a preventative medicine. Masters were once revered according to how healthy their patients were. Wouldn’t it be great if Western methods and practitioners were revered in this way also? Well, we’re here!

“To administer medicine after an illness begins is… like digging a well after becoming thirsty or casting weapons after a battle is engaged.” Huangdi Neijing
