Should I Keep My Acupuncture Appointment If I Am Sick?

in Acupuncture, FAQ's

Yes. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are highly effective for treating acute conditions, such as colds, flues, stomach viruses and headaches. Patients report immediate improvement in symptoms after using acupuncture or herbs. When your body is fighting off acute illness, the chronic condition usually is exacerbated. So, knock it out immediately!

The same goes for injury. If you’ve had an accident of some kind, and you hurt your neck, back, knee or elbow, call immediately. The quicker you come in to get treated, the quicker the problem will resolve.

If you are sick and have an appointment scheduled, keep it. If you’re concerned about being contagious to your practitioner, don’t be. Our commitment is to help you, no matter
