Acupuncture is clearly an effective treatment for a variety of acute conditions, effectively dealing with symptoms and addressing root causes as part of an overall treatment plan. However, it is important to understand that acupuncture can be equally beneficial even when acute conditions are not present (or have been effectively treated).
Acupuncture can be extremely helpful in maintaining overall wellness. There are a variety of physical, mental and emotional benefits brought by incorporating acupuncture into your wellness regimen on a regular basis. Some people benefit most from weekly, twice monthly or monthly wellness treatments, depending on what is happening with your state of health. Your practitioner can help you to decide what is most effective.
