How does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture treats diseases by inserting the needles into certain designated points along the channels or meridians in the body and thereby stimulating the body's "Qi" to heal itself.  The patient may feel tingling, electrical or the "Qi" sensation.

How many treatments are necessary?

Each person is unique; therefore, the treatment plan is individualized.  It depends on the type of illness, the severity of the condition, the duration of the illness, and your physical state at the time of treatment.  It usually takes between five to ten sessions for acute symptoms.  Chronic conditions can take longer depending on the severity.
