Acupuncture is not only a treatment technique that can relieve pain; it’s also a means to promote the body’s self-healing system. Non-drug therapy is very different from other ways of treating problems. Generally, as a treatment for pain or sports injuries, acupuncture can have a significant effect in one or two weeks, whereas with other treatments, the patient sees obvious results in about a month.
It is recommended for patients to undergo treatment one to three times per week, and a single treatment session usually lasts from half an hour to an hour.
With electro-acupuncture, the practitioner uses low-frequency or medium-frequency micro-currents to stimulate acupuncture points through needles. Electro-acupuncture enhances the effect of acupuncture and relaxes the muscles even better. It alleviates pain and can be used interchangeably with general acupuncture.
Ren needle is a relatively powerful method of acupuncture, especially for stubborn pain, sports injuries, and illnesses leading to restricted activities. It has obvious effects and promotes stronger reactions. Generally, patients take a week to recover after the treatment. Doctors may choose Ren needle according to the patient’s situation.
