I request verbal consent before I administer each technique. You are never out-of-control under my care. I will honestly tell you what to experience and whether I highly recommend you breathe through a technique you are fearful of or decide to abandon it because it is not essential to our goals. Acupuncture visits may require six to twelve visits to realize the benefits. I will continue to study new techniques in acupuncture styles (there are over 200 international styles: Chinese, Japanese, British, French Canadian, Vietnamese, Korean and Ayurvedic). The supreme medicine of course is eating plenty of organic vegetables and fruits -(your refrigerator is your medicine cabinet) exercising, and having positive thought vibrations.
