What Can I Expect? Your first visit will include a full health assessment and you will be given the opportunity to thoroughly discuss your concerns and health goals. Initial appointments typically last 90 minutes and include consultation and treatment. The practitioner will determine your treatment plan and decide if you need just Acupuncture, or if they will add one of the other modalities used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, such as moxibustion.
Your Acupuncturist may ask a variety of questions about health and lifestyle as well as utilize traditional diagnostic methods such as looking at your tongue and feeling your pulse.
One or both sides of your body may be treated, and the Acupuncturist will use anywhere from 10-40 sterile disposable acupuncture needles. Some sensations during treatment include tingling, heaviness, or a radiating sensation. Needles may be left in for 20 to 40 minutes.
Treatment should be fairly relaxing and often patients enjoy a short nap.
How can I expect to feel following my treatment? Although everyone responds differently, some common experiences include drowsiness, relaxation, or feeling energized. You might some post acupuncture sensation at the site of insertion, and occasionally people feel a little sore. Acupuncture works by moving and improving energy flow and therefore a variety of sensations are common during the healing process.
How many treatments will I need? Once a full assessment has been completed then findings and diagnosis according to Traditional Chinese Medicine principles, will be shared. You will also be given a customized treatment plan, which may include nutritional and lifestyle recommendations, herbal prescriptions, other modalities, and suggested frequency of acupuncture treatments. The number of sessions needed will vary person to person. Chronic conditions will often take longer to heal than acute ones. Acupuncture treatments build on each other and therefore it is usually recommended that the initial treatments not be more than a week apart.
