For some chronic disorders, patients need a long time of treatment to achieve a new balance. The reset of a balance takes the following 3 steps:
01 Symptom relieving phase
patients are supposed to come for treatment twice a week or at least once a week, so as to quickly relieve main symptoms and activate the body to function in a higher level. This phase takes around 6 times of treatment.
02 Balance achieving phase
based on the first phase, now the body is more energetic and more sensitive to acupuncture stimulation. Since major symptoms are much relieved, points to harmonize Yin-Yang and regulate internal organs are selected to achieve the balance of body and mind. Patients are required to come for a treatment once a week or one every two weeks and continue to around 1 month.
03 Balance maintaining phase
in this phase, patients will notice on and off of some symptoms. This is because the body is in a unstable new balance. They still need to come for a treatment twice or once a month to get a stable balance. This phase usually takes one or two months. At the end of this phase, based on your pulse and tongue picture at that moment, Dr Yan will let you know your precautions in diet and life style, so that you can avoid the relapse and keep healthy in a long run.
