See your acupuncturist once a year as Preventive Care. This can save you money before a problem or bigger problem arises. It cost more money to fix a problem then to prevent it from happening.
Don’t wait til you have a problem before seeing a skilled acupuncturist. Those stiffness in the body can evolve to pain and aches, such as arthritis or spinal degeneration.
Preventive Care is to keep the body healthy so that you are NOT dependent on prescription drugs or the need for surgeries. Another words, Preventive Care is to treat the body before it turns into a problem or disease and to keep the body in PEAK performance. Think of it as Health Maintenance.
In the USA, our healthcare system is a Sick Care system as stated by Dr. Stephen C. Schimpff, MD in an article by Yale School of Medicine and Dr. Mark Hyman, MD. Even Harvard Medical School is making the same claim. A very outspoken nurse is speaking about the US Sick Care system. Surprisingly Amazon has a book describing this problem about Sick Care system written by Dr. Doug McGuff. We treat patients when they are sick and not curing the patients. Then using prescription drugs to TEMPORARILY fix their problems then add more drugs to treat the side effects of the previous medications. This needs to change and the solution is acupuncture or TCM.
In the modern world, there is a need for pharmaceutical drugs but not in excess and definitely not the dependency on it. This is where Preventive Care of TCM comes into play as stated by Dr. Andrew Weil, MD. Dr. Weil calls it a “tune up” as it should be noted.
Our goal as an acupuncturist, is to PREVENT the body from getting to the need for more drastic measure. A skilled and experienced acupuncturist can diagnose your condition to treat your minor problems before it progresses into bigger problems. This practice of preventive care is called diagnosing the “Acute” and “Chronic” problems and creating a treatment plan to stay healthy.
Acupuncture, Tuina, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, herbal formulas and therapeutic dosages of vitamins can be used as preventive care.
