Treatment Information

What happens when I go for treatment?

Your acupuncturist will use a number of different diagnostic methods to get a complete picture of your health and lifestyle, including taking a full medical history, reading your pulses, and looking at your tongue. Based on this information, the acupuncturist makes a diagnosis and puts together your personal treatment plan. Acupuncture points are selected according to your symptoms as well as your underlying pattern.

The single-use sterile needles come in sealed packs, and are safely disposed of after each treatment.

What does it feel like?

Acupuncture needles are much finer than needles used for injections and blood tests. When the needle is inserted you may feel a tingling sensation or dull ache.

Is it safe?

Acupuncture is widely acknowledged as being very safe. The needles used are single-use, sterile, and disposable. Responses to treatment can sometimes include tiredness or mild dizziness, and very occasionally minor bruising may occur. However, all such reactions are short-lived.

How many sessions will I need?

Frequency and number of sessions depend on your individual condition. Your acupuncturist will normally ask to see you once or twice a week at first. Improvement is usually felt within five or six treatments, although occasionally less treatment is sufficient. Some people choose to have regular acupuncture to maintain good health.
