1. How does acupuncturist treat a patient?

Simply said, our body consists of six pairs of balance systems, called the twelve meridians, and each meridian responds to certain functions of the body.  These 12 meridians are known as systems of immunity, metabolism, endocrine and others in modern medicine. According to Ling Shu, since each meridian is responding to a certain function, there will be a certain group of symptoms that will occur if a meridian is out of balance. Thus, an acupuncturist is able to find the imbalanced meridian through those clinical symptoms, and then he will needle a few points from the imbalanced meridians, and re-balance those using proper techniques.

2,  “Acupuncture therapy is no pain, no gain.” Is this true?

No. Most patients can attest that they feel less pain from acupuncture treatments than they feel from hypodermic injections. According to Ling Shu chapter 9, prolonged pain or sharp pain indicates that acupuncturist have missed the points.

3. How many visits do I need before I can feel improvement?

The majority of our patients conditions related with pain improve after their first visit.
