Is it okay to do other treatments at the same time?

Generally speaking, acupuncture can work well in conjunction with other therapies. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is part of a holistic treatment approach with diet, lifestyle and other factors being addressed. At Integrative Therapies, it is possible that you might engage in physical therapy or other forms of treatment during the same weeks that you are receiving acupuncture. It is important to realize, however, that acupuncture can be very subtle in its impact and that performing rigorous activities or engaging in other therapy modalities immediately before or after an acupuncture session may influence the degree of benefit from the treatment.
