What To Expect
Your first visit entails a 90 minute Initial Consultation & Treatment, during which we have a thorough discussion of your health history and what your goals are, setting a solid game plan for progress, along with you receiving your first acupuncture treatment. Subsequent visits are 60 minutes.
You will remain comfortably clothed or covered during treatment. Soft lighting, peaceful music and a warm comfortable treatment space is provided to aid in your overall comfort and relaxation.
Does Acupuncture Hurt?
Sterilized disposable hair-fine needles are gently inserted into the skin to stimulate certain points along the major energy channels of the body. Most people feel a tiny pinch, or little to no sensation at first. Once the needle is in place a tingling sensation or heaviness may be felt, signifying the needle's impact on that point. A feeling of overall calm and relaxation ensues and persists even after you leave.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Since acupuncture treats the individual, I will assess your unique health needs as well as the severity of your health concern in order to determine the frequency of your visits. Depending on how favorably you respond to treatment the amount of recommend follow up sessions will vary accordingly. Our goal is to help restore a state of health that you are satisfied with, no longer needing treatment. Continued periodic visits are beneficial in order to help keep immunity and energy levels strong.
