Giovanni Maciocia, in comparing practice in China and the UK, observed that, “You call weekly treatment proper treatment for here, but that’s created by social circumstances. We’re in private practice and people can’t afford to come more often. If they could, they would come every other day.” — Kaptchuk et al, 1985
