As you may be aware, hundreds of clinical studies on the benefits of acupuncture show that it successfully treats conditions ranging from pregnancy, labour and postpartum health, reducing pain, muscle spasms, back problems, headaches, sinus and allergy pain, digestive problems, osteoarthritis, helps with anxiety, depression too and hot flushes, without the need of medications that may cause side effects.

Because everyone is unique, we each experience the effects of traditional Chinese medicine a little differently.

Some may notice the benefits almost immediately, while others may need a few treatments. Some people become very relaxed while others may feel energized. Some may even feel worse before they feel better as the toxins make their way out of the body.

At Embrace Health,  90 per cent of clients report feeling an immediate improvement in their condition after the first treatment. In most cases, you should see positive change after three treatments, however the longer you have had a condition, the more treatments you may need to resolve it.

If you have had the problem for many years, then it is realistic to expect you will need treatment for several months. Babies and children respond extremely well, hence the need for fewer treatments than adults.

A regular, monthly treatment is recommended to maintain a balanced and harmonious state.
