What happens during an acupuncture treatment?

A treatment includes a look at the patients health history, an acupuncture session, herbal, dietary and lifestyle recommendations. Each treatment will vary according to how ones body is changing throughout the healing process. I will look at the patients tongue and feel the pulse in order to diagnose the condition and create a treatment plan.

How long will I need treatment?

Treatment protocols are created specifically for individuals. No one person is alike and disharmonies within the body manifest differently for everyone. The brilliance in Chinese Medicine is in its ability to tailor treatment protocols to individuals. Chronic conditions tend to take longer than acute ones. For the most part, noticeable differences take place after three to five treatments. Acupuncture works on a deep level within the body and its effects are long lasting and the need for treatments decreases as the body heals. Most patients experience a deep level of relaxation and an overall sense of well being during and after an acupuncture session.
