Do I Have to Believe in Acupuncture For It To Work?
No. Acupuncture is used successfully to treat animals that cannot understand the process or “believe” that it will make them better. Also, I have successfully treated a great many patients who come only at the behest of their significant other and are fully convinced that acupuncture will NOT work for them. I am always delighted to see a closed mind open.
A positive attitude towards wellness may reinforce the effects of the treatment received, just as a negative attitude may hinder the effects of acupuncture or any other treatment. A neutral attitude will not block the treatment results.
