£¢I have got sciatica (left hand side) approx 5 years. I have tried everything: physiotherapy, chiropractor doctor, painkillers¡­etc. Nothing worked. The acupuncture appears to have completely cured the problem! Very surprised. No more pain! I am very satisfied with the treatments. I would thoroughly recommend acupuncture to anyone¡¨.

£¢I got migraine over 8 years. At least one attack a week. I have not attacks for the whole time and feel a lot better than I have for a long time after 5 weeks of acupuncture and herbal remedies. I cannot believe the results in such a short time. I would have no problems recommending Dr Tang to anyone. He has totally changed my health and wellbeing¡¨.

Does acupuncture hurt?
Not usually. When the needle is inserted, the sensation is often described as a tingling. A dull ache sometime develops at the point (considered to be a good therapeutic sign) but the needles are so fine that people having treatment for the first time are pleasantly surprised, finding the treatment to be very relaxing and therapeutic.
We use single use pre-sterilized disposable needles, which are disposed of after each treatment.

How does Chinese Medicine work?
Based on the overall symptoms a patient has, which includes the state of illness, the patient's sex, age, and constitution, occurring season of the disease and circumstances, our practitioners begins with the guidelines to form a basic prescription and then adjusts the mixture to the patients needs by adding or deleting various herbs, or manipulating the dosages of the compounds to fit the precise disharmony. Such a prescription usually contains 10-15 herbs and the dosages average 5-15 grams per herb. So that prescriptions can be tailor-made for every medical condition and specific to your needs. Prescriptions are used to correct patterns of disharmony and imbalance within the body.

How quick can I expect to feel better?
In general, we tell our patients they should start to feel the benefits from acupuncture and or herbal remedies in 2-3 treatments. If the problem is acute, sometimes improvement is felt after 1 treatment or 1 week, and may only need 3-5 treatments to resolve. If the problem is chronic and long term, it may take a course of treatments to help resolve.

How often should I be treated?
We treat patients by acupuncture and or herbal remedies once a week. If the condition is acute and painful, we may want to do acupuncture treatment 2-3 times per week for the first couple of weeks. The benefits of acupuncture treatments tend to hold longer as you receive treatments, so what typically happens is that our patients start to need to see us less and less, so after a while they only come periodically for maintenance.

Should I continue with my prescribed medication while undergoing a course of acupuncture treatment?
Yes, at least until careful discussion this with your doctor or the practitioner who prescribed the medication. Many people seek the help of an acupuncturist because of dissatisfaction with drug treatment - because it does not seem to be working or because the side effects are unacceptable. DO not stop taking any medication without professional guidance.
