Why your acupuncturist might treat the opposite side of your pain

The pain is on your left side but your acupuncturist has started putting needles on the right side. Wasn’t she listening when you told her your problem? Or maybe he’s so tired he already forgot!

Or maybe she really knows what she is doing. There are times when treating the opposite side is the appropriate treatment and will give great results.

If you’ve just had surgery, treating the opposite side can help relieve post surgical pain.

If an area of the body is too inflamed, treating the opposite side can reduce the inflammation thereby reducing pain.

An experienced acupuncturist will know when such a treatment is called for.
