Acupuncture Poll

By Editorial Staff

The Acupuncture Poll's question for May2002 was:

"How often do you, an acupuncturist, receive acupuncture from someone else?"

These results are based upon 194 responses.

As this is a voluntary, non-scientific survey, caution should be used in generalizing the results. Here is a sample of the comments made by those who took the survey and how they voted:

Once or twice a month: It is important to keep up your own pulse readings and monitor your own health. I do this each week, or whenever I believe I am out of balance or "off-color." To this end, I recommend all patients to come in and have their pulses read and balanced every season for preventative care. This is acknowledged TCM practice. If we don't look after ourselves, how can we care for our patients?

More than once a week: When I need treatment, I will commit to a two-to-three times per week treatment schedule for three to six weeks.

Less than once a month: I get a treatment once a season or if I am sick. I get massage once every week or so, and practice tai chi chuan and ba gua. The latter two activities have been key in maintaining and increasing my health. I treat myself with herbs as necessary. I do my best to be as strong, vital and stagnation-free as I can. My patients seem to get better faster when I am.
