What can you expect in an Individual Acupuncture Treatment?
An acupuncturist who has studied Traditional Chinese Medicine has been trained to address the physical, emotional, and mental well being of their patients. When you come into our clinic for the first time, we will take the time to listen to you and understand your situation. Our practitioners are skilled listeners. Secondly, we take some time to explain how acupuncture works. We believe the better you understand the treatment, the better the outcome will be.
Get ready for a deeply relaxing experience. After listening to you, the acupuncturist may be do some range of motion or orthopedic testing to assess the situation. Once the assessment is made, the needles will be inserted. The number is depends on what’s happening with you that day. After checking to make sure you are comfortable and warm enough, we let you rest on one of our massage tables. Many people enjoy this experience and quite a few fall asleep! Each room has relaxing music playing, with options for heat on the table or not, as well as warming heat lamps. You will usually rest by yourself approximately 20 minutes.
Afterwards, your acupuncturist will return and check on you. At that point, they may manipulate the needles, insert other needles, or do some other techniques with you. Some of the other techniques include Acupressure, Chinese Herbs, Cupping, Shiatsu, Gua Sha, Kinesiotape, and Moxabustion.
When this second round of treatment is concluded, you may receive additional instructions around food and exercise options, or herb formulas that would enhance your treatment.
Individual acupuncture treatments focus on you and your specific needs. This one-to-one relationship allows you to move your health according to your own process and your own unique needs. Our acupuncturists are skilled at listening to what you say
