How many treatments do I need?

In general the older the illness, the longer the patient will need treatment. So patients should not expect miracles. Also since every person is treated as a unique individual, it is not possible to forecast exactly the duration of the treatment; this depends on the reaction to the treatment itself.

Is it Safe?

All members of the British Acupuncture Council (MBAcC) are obliged to observe a code of practice that lays down stringent standards of hygiene and equipment safety. These procedures have been approved by the Dept of Health.

What should one do or not do after treatment?

On the day of the treatment it is advisable to avoid heavy physical work, excessive excitement or stress. This applies especially in the case of the first treatment. Otherwise no special precautions are necessary.

What reaction can one expect?

You may experience an immediate improvement in your condition, or there may be a slow progressive improvement. Occasionally there may be an initial worsening of symptoms for a short period followed by a marked improvement.
