What to Expect in a Session:
A common assumption about acupuncture is that it hurts. Fear of pain from acupuncture needles is one of the most common reasons people forgo acupuncture.
Often to the astonishment of those who take the plunge, acupuncture usually does not hurt. No pain, though, does not mean no sensation.
Acupuncture facilitates the body’s innate healing abilities. Our bodies are incredible systems that can rebuild bone, muscle, tissues and nerves, and regulate hormones and brain chemistry all at the same time.
There is no blanket cure for any one disease or disorder, according to Chinese Medicine. That’s why I take the time to sit down with each patient, listen to your specific symptoms and complaints, and formulate a treatment protocol that is personalized to your unique body and life. I follow up with my patients and adjust the treatment protocol as your health goals are attained. In this way, I ensure long-term solutions for my patients not just band-aids to make their symptoms go away.
Before your first treatment:
It is best to be neither hungry nor extremely full during your treatment, so please make sure to eat and drink water before your session.
Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing so I can treat a specific area of concern.
Don’t brush your tongue before your treatment, as it is a diagnostic tool.
Print out & complete your new patient paperwork , and don’t forget to bring it with you.
During your treatment :
First we will review your intake form and discuss your concerns and health goals.
I will check your tongue which provides me with information on your internal.
I will check your pulse which in Chinese medicine is a more extensive tool than just a heart rate.
Feel free to ask questions as they arise, this is your time.
I create an environment to support you in relaxing, that may include essential oils, meditation music, or silent reflection.
Once the needles go in, you might feel a variety of sensations. Some people feel a mild aching, or maybe a little bit of heaviness, a feeling of distention, or warmth. Any of these are really good signs. It means we’re stimulating the body correctly by activating nerves and connective tissue. My goal is to make these comfortable sensations that you can relax through.
To Achieve Your Health Goals:
It is important to commit to the appropriate frequency of follow-up visits recommended in your individual care plan. In most cases, it is recommended that follow up treatments be done every 5-7 days for a period of time, after which the frequency is stretched out as your body begins to show signs of recovery. In some cases, the intervals will be shorter. In some cases they will be longer. Allowing too much time to go by between treatments, early on in your case, will greatly interfere with your body’s ability to integrate and maximize the healing effects of Acupuncture. For average conditions, I recommend one treatment at least once a week preferably at least three to six consecutive weeks. Most conditions show significant improvement within three to twelve sessions.For health maintenance or preventative care, I recommend four treatments per season or twelve treatments per year.
