In an article by the NY Times, there is a lot of talk on how popular acupuncture is becoming, despite the high costs of actually getting acupuncture treatment.
A lot of conditions are being treated with acupuncture – including fertility problems, diabetes, hormone problems, pain and serious migraines and a lot more – a lot of these conditions are not covered by insurance providers in the United States, and people are actively seeking and paying for this – of course, only one reason to really point towards, is that something must be working, that people pay for weekly treatments of $100+ a week.
It is essential that you pick the right acupuncturist for your condition and requirement – and also important to understand that not all acupuncture is equal – just because one acupuncturist is charging a lot less than the other, might just mean they don’t have enough knowledge and know-how for the condition, so you get what you paid for – but it is about consulting with the acupuncturist and seeing what feels right for you – we recommend looking at the top acupuncturists we have rated on our homepage here, for you to find the right one for you and your needs.
