Frequently Asked Questions
Which area of the body will the treatment be done?
Electro-acupuncture is usually done on the stomach, arms and legs. Depending on the diagnosis by your physician, different acupoints will be taken. Cupping is normally done after acupuncture on the stomach, thighs, arms and/or back.
How often should the treatment be done?
The frequency of treatment is discussed and agreed in consensus between the consulting physician and patient, as the requirements, conditions and results for each individual vary. Typically, treatments are done twice a week for the first 2-4 weeks. Subsequent treatments are done once a week.
The Weight Management programme consists of 1 course of 10 sessions. Depending on the individual, 2 or more courses might be recommended.
How do you keep track of my progress?
The physician will examine your pulse and tongue to keep track of the changes in your body. The physician can also monitor your condition through the cupping marks as the different colours reflect different diagnostic patterns. Your weight and measurements are also recorded throughout the programme.
Does it hurt?
Acupuncture needles are hair-thin. It is generally not painful, however, some individuals may feel some soreness when needles are inserted around the associated organ with blockages or imbalance.
