Chinese medicine is based upon the belief
that there is need for balance in the flow of energy in the
body. The energy we are referring to is a) Chi, b) blood and
c) electrical energy form the nervous system. These energies
must be in balance and in harmony to maintain health.
When these energies become blocked and cannot circulate, pain
and/or loss of body function occur. This is what we call Chi
stagnation. Acupuncture treatment has the effect of removing
the energy blockages, increasing the circulation of chi and
blood and it also exerts effect on the autonomic nervous system.
This combination activates the healing process. The result
is relief of pain and the restoration of body function, or
are the internal effects of Acupuncture?
heals the body in a number of ways.
Research has indicated that the immediately effect of Acupuncture
is the increased production of endorphin. Endorphins are “
internal morphine” which has two major effects: 1) it
relaxes the body and 2) it serves to reduce the level of pain.
Another aspect of the effect of the endorphin production is
to increasing the circulation of blood, which sends nutrition
via the small blood vessels to all parts of the body. Endorphins
are the body's natural pain relievers that have an analgesic,
anti-depressant, and anti-allergic effect. They relieve pain
and give a sense of euphoria.
Results Can I Expect?
experience immediate relief after the first treatment. In
some cases it last for only a few hours and in other cases
the relief lasts for a few days. In many cases patients begin
to feel better after a few treatments. We encourage you to
experiment with our therapy try 4 to 6 treatments to see how
well our therapy can benefit you.
we have rarely witnessed patients with no relief during the
course of treatment. Symptomatic relief can be expected after
4 to 8 weeks of continued treatment. And corrective care can
be expected after 24 to 36 treatments.
your health investment we highly recommend that you continue
to have treatment four to six times each year. The maintenance
care will benefit you and you family in many ways.
Many Treatments Will I Need?
CARE in acute cases you can expect to see results after 4
to 6 treatments. We determine your level of care based upon
the depth of your disease acute or chronic. Each patient has
different needs and different degrees of immune function.
Chronic conditions and neurological conditions require more
treatments in order to obtain lasting results. In Chronic
conditions you can expect to see results but it will take
longer. Complete relief may need 12 to 18 treatments.
Long Will Acupuncture Relief Last?
From our standpoint
disease can be identified as either acute or chronic and we
generally classify treatment into two types A) Relief Care
and b) Corrective Care.
Relief care will generally work within18 treatments and will
give temporary relief for up to six months. It works on what
we cal Qi stagnation
care takes over where relief care ends that is after you have
been treated for say 12 to 18 treatment and you no long feel
your original pain. Corrective care begins to treat at the
deeper level, at the cause of the pain to correct the Organ
imbalance. Corrective care seems to last indefinitely.
