I have a case where acupuncture worked very well (elderly female, 3 year history of incontinence, after 3 sessions symptoms completely disappeared). I've done 2 sessions a week, 7 sessions in total now. After I tried to reduce the sessions to once a week (last two sessions), the incontinence slowly came back, however, not nearly as badly as before (mostly at night). The goal is to reduce the acupuncture sessions to once a month, since finances are a problem. However, I am worried that if I reduce sessions, the incontinence will come back full throttle.
What do we do in such cases? Acupuncture works so well for her, but only if done often. Anything she can do at home herself, I was wondering if perhaps a TENS machine, or an acupuncture "pen"? I am just not confident these will work very well. She already uses acupressure and moxibustion on herself, but that doesn't seem to do much.
Any ideas, or is this case just unfortunate?
Thank you very much,
