Possible side effects that may additional monitoring

  1. Reactions and aftereffects
    Various secondary symptoms may temporarily appear after treatment. Those symptoms, which are called "Men-gen" in Chinese Medicine, are considered positive effects; therefore, no cause for concern. Symptoms should abate as time passes.
  2. Treatment effects and frequencies
    The earlier an acupuncture treatment is performed, the more successful the remediation. Severe symptoms may be alleviated by one session, but chronic symptoms may require an extensive treatment plan. Receiving one treatment per day is usually the most effective, but that depends on the symptoms. Sometimes one or two treatment sessions per week may be sufficient.
    Please follow the acupuncturist's advice.

    Taking good care off one's self is a very essential component in any type of treatment. Follow the rules mentioned below during the period of treatment sessions in order to avoid symptom relapse.
    • Get enough sleep
    • Do not drink alcohol

  5. Lastyl
    Advices may be given as the need arises, but the most important thing is your mental attitude. Acupuncture treatment works for not only diseases but also the improvement of the body's constitution, and treats the root cause of the illness going beyond the obvious symptoms. Treatment sessions on the regular basis can prevent contracting most illnesses, improve your physical strength, and can lead to an overall sense of wellness and an enhancement to one's quality of life.
