Rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, COPD, fibromyalgia, cancer treatment. Some medical conditions are here to stay, or require ongoing conventional medical care, but community acupuncture can help. We find that regular acupuncture can minimize flare-ups, increase rest and recovery, and treat co-factors like depression and weight gain, as well as drug side-effects, like nausea from chemo or digestive sluggishness from pain medication.
We recommend: Frequency will depend on your health condition; some folks come in just when they start to experience flare-ups, every month or so; others come in up to three times a week to maintain energy and get deep rest during chemo treatment or with severe health conditions. Often people will come and go as their symptoms come and go. We generally suggest you begin with a course of 6-10 treatments at your desired frequency, then come in as often or as little as you need going forward.
