Do you have to “believe in” acupuncture for it to work? Is it a placebo?

Absolutely, not – you only have to believe enough to make an appointment for a consultation and treatment, in order to give yourself the chance to see the positive changes that acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine can bring to your life. Just as taking medicine causes physiological changes regardless of knowledge or belief in it, acupuncture causes physiological changes in the body regardless of knowledge or belief in the treatment as well.

Just as taking medicine causes physiological changes regardless of knowledge or belief in it, acupuncture causes physiological changes in the body regardless of knowledge or belief in the treatment as well. The proof lies in the fact that acupuncture is used effectively on dogs, cats, horses and other animals, as well as infants. These patients do not understand or believe in the process that helps them get better. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years in China, and many studies have proven the effectiveness of acupuncture. Read a few testimonials from our patients, and we also have many more available at the clinic for you to read. Of course, a positive attitude toward health and well-being will reinforce the effects of the treatments, just as a negative attitude could hamper the effects of acupuncture or any other treatment. Also, a neutral attitude will not negate the effectiveness of the treatment, either.
