Acupuncture has been an important practice for healing and maintaining good health for thousands of years. Scientific studies to determine exactly how acupuncture works are ongoing and becoming more common. Recently, The Royal College of General Practitioners reported that two studies in the British Journal of General Practice have shown that patients, “perceived a wide range of positive effects and appeared to take on a more active role in their consultations and self-care.” The patients showed a sustained improvement which, ultimately, is the goal of five-element acupuncture. Chinese Medicine works to heal the whole person and the issues behind symptoms, not just symptoms themselves. According to the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture, the number of treatments needed depends of the individual patient, but may be as many as 2 treatments each week for a few months. Often, in China, a patient will be prescribed a course of Acupuncture, once each week for several weeks, for example. Then, the acupuncturist will assess his or her improvements and the patient may return to a less frequent acupuncture schedule.
