The clinic uses top quality pre-sterilized, disposable needles. The number of treatments will vary with each individual and the condition being treated. For acute problems only a few treatments may be required. For complex or chronic conditions one or two treatments per week for several months may be recommended, with less frequent treatments necessary as improvement occurs.
Oriental medicine is also an educational process in which the patient becomes more aware of his or her body, lifestyle and attitude. Ideally, acupuncture is used as preventative medicine. Depending on each patient’s lifestyle, regular weekly or monthly treatments can keep both body and mind in balance.
