How Can Acupuncture Help You?

Having been around for more than 2,000 years, acupuncture has stood the test of time and is continuing to prove itself as a successful contender for helping a broad array of health conditions. In recent times, acupuncture has gone under more formal investigations to try to understand its scope of effectiveness more clearly. So far, with the research that is available to date, evidence is now supportive of Acupuncture being effective for over 117 health conditions, considered safe if performed by a well-trained practitioner, and cost effective as treatment for some conditions. (see below for details)

“It is no longer possible to say that the effectiveness of acupuncture is because of the placebo effect, or that it is useful only for musculoskeletal pain.”

Acupuncture Benefits

Acupuncture offers a drug free option for treatment that is holistic in nature. It has a different paradigm of diagnosis and can often link a series of symptoms that could be unexplained by western methods of diagnosis. This can give a new level of understanding to how your body is functioning.

How many treatments do I need?

One of the keys to success for acupuncture is having adequate amount of treatments. It is not a miracle treatment, especially for chronic conditions, and one treatment isn’t enough to ensure long lasting benefit. Just as you wouldn’t expect to get your high blood pressure fixed by only taking a one-off dose of blood pressure medication, you couldn’t expect to have lasting changes by having a random acupuncture treatment.
