Who uses acupuncture, what it treats and how it works

Why people use acupuncture

The reasons are as multitudinous — and as varied — as snowflakes. It could be that western bio-medicine’s pharmacologically targeted molecules did not contain the key that fit the lock of a particular set of difficulties. Perhaps the side effects of such efforts proved more troubling than the initial complaint…

What acupuncture treats

You have probably heard from a number of people with different health concerns that acupuncture has been helpful for them. It’s true. Acupuncture is effective in the treatment of a wide range of conditions. Here’s a partial list.

How acupuncture works

It’s science! Chinese science; 2000 years of it.

It has its own logical and constructs. It is rigorous from within its own frame. It does not even come close to resembling Western science. And unless you have been schooled in it, it will not make much sense at all; just like chemical engineering is goobledegook to most of us. This is not to say that the average person can not understand it.

What people say about acupuncture

Here is what some patients in their own words have to say about the experience of acupuncture.

How long does it take to work?

When can I expect to see results with acupuncture? And are those results lasting, or will I need to come back again?

Is it expensive?

Of course, expensive is in the eye of the beholder. Just what is it worth to you to get a restorative night’s sleep? Have the ability to eat what you want, and when? Or inhabit the vast equanimity of feeling your emotions without them calling the tune of your behavior or choices?
