The 3 Levels of Successful Acupuncture Care
- Level 1: Relieve
Most people fall into this level at their first acupuncture visit. The main goal of this level is to expedite healing so you start to feel relief from your symptoms. This level requires more frequent care to relieve your symptoms and get you feeling better.
- Level 2: Correct
Once your symptoms have faded and you are making progress, you will enter Level 2. This is the phase where we correct and rebalance the underlying issues that may have caused your symptoms. Just like when peeling an onion, there are layers of healing. Level 1 addresses the first layer, Level 2 moves deeper to address what is underneath and fix the core issue. Also, old habits are hard to break and without corrective care, the body will fall back into its old imbalances and the issues may return. This Level is crucial for lasting relief and whole-body wellness.
- Level 3: Maintain & Prevent
Welcome to Level 3! Here is where you graduate from correcting your issues to maintaining fabulous health. You have dedicated a good deal of time and energy into healing your body, now you need to take care and prevent. Visits in Level 3 are like tune-ups for your body – they help to keep your body on track and detect and minor issues before they become full-blown problems.
