The following lists some of the many benefits of acupuncture housecalls.
Busy schedule – save time. No wasted time driving and finding parking.
Reduce stress. After session you can relax for a while. This is the way it is supposed to be but is not done in modern acupuncture clinics (or in-and-out massage places). In your home you won’t be rushed in and out as you would be in an office. And, no stress from driving to and from office, trying to get to appointment on time, and searching for parking.
Familiar environment. Your personal environment increases your comfort and ability to relax.
Correct temperature. In your home, you are treated in a room with a temperature you prefer. Offices are often too cold. This can tighten the body, reducing the flow of energy.
One-on-one contact. You are given undivided attention. You can ask questions at any time during your session. Although one-on-one contact is expected during massage and Reiki, often acupuncturists see several patients at a time. They put needles in you and go to next patient while you are left alone. When you receive an acupuncture treatment in your home, you can choose to have the acupuncturist sit in the room during the entire session or go into another room while you relax (most people find treatments very relaxing). Nevertheless, the acupuncturist is always available to you during your entire session.
You are physically unable to go to an office. This can be due to a number of reasons such as physical injury, healing after surgery, illness, or maybe you just can’t drive and have no one to drive you. You might be a stay-at-home parent and need to be home for your children, or you might need to be home to care for an elderly parent. Whatever the reason, there is no need to forgo treatment – schedule an acupuncture treatment in your home.
Boost benefit of treatment. After being relaxed, you don’t want suddenly jolt your body. After the needles are removed, Qi energy continues to flow through the meridians of your body and around the points of insertion. Leaving an office and going back into traffic tightens the body and blocks the energy flow. You want to get the most out of your acupuncture session. Taking it easy after a session for 30-60 minutes can increase the benefit of the treatment.
