WHAT TO EXPECT IN YOUR INITIAL ACUPUNCTURE CONSULTATION
Information including presenting symptoms, medical history, digestive system, circulatory system, sleeping patterns, diet & lifestyle will be taken to facilitate a treatment plan designed specifically for you.
As part of the overall diagnosis, looking at your tongue in addition to feeling pulses on both wrists will be included.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO YOU NEED?
The amount of treatments required depends entirely on the condition being treated. Patients are normally seen once a week to begin with. Change is commonly felt by the patient within five or six treatments, although at times just one or two treatments suffice.
As a guide, acute conditions could require only a few sessions, whereas chronic conditions may take longer to improve.
FOLLOW-UP ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENTS
Acupuncture needles in addition to other complimentary Chinese medicine therapies may be used during your treatment. Some needles may remain in for a period of time and others may be in for a matter of seconds. When inserted you may feel a dull ache, tingle, warmth or pulling sensation. All needles are single-use, sterile and disposable.
As points most commonly used are located on the lower arms and legs, it is useful to wear loose, comfortable clothing.
