During your first visit with us, you will have a consultation to go over your current health concerns. This gives you the opportunity to express any concerns or questions you may have. After this, we will take you up to the treatment area where you can choose a treatment table or chair of your choice. Please remember to bring all of your belonging up with you, you will find a basket near your chair for your stuff. Once you are in the treatment area you will be treated by one your health care practitioner. Typically it will take 10-15 minutes to insert the needles and then you will rest for 25-30 minutes.
It is important to relax and lie still during your rest time. If you move you might feels a discomfort where the needles are. During your session it is a great time to practice mediation or breathing exercises to achieve the most relaxed state to allow the treatments fully work. (Breathing exercise- when you breath in your belly goes up and when you breathe out your belly goes down; when your mind starts to wonder just bring it back to the breath!)
We offer earplugs and eye pillows for extra comfort just let us know if you would like one.
If you are placed face down on a table you will be given a small bell, that is placed in you hand. You can ring it at any time if you have any discomfort or are ready to get up!
It is important to remember that acupuncture is a process, and one which usually takes multiple treatments to help most conditions. This could be anywhere from 1-12 treatments depending on your constitution and the conditions being treated, at an interval of 1-3 visits per week in most cases. In general, acute conditions are quicker to treat than long standing chronic ones. A treatment plan is discussed with you during the initial intake. On subsequent visits, we do a quick check-in to see how you’ve been feeling since the previous treatment, and if anything new has come up which needs to be addressed. We always check your tongue and pulse for changes. This gives us valuable information as to how you are responding to treatments.
We are here to make you experience the best it can be, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
