What will happen when I have Acupuncture? 

During your initial consultation, we will go through your medical history, take your pulses and take a look at your tongue. An individual treatment plan will then be made and specific points will be chosen for you. 

Some points will be inserted just for a second or two and others may be left in for a whole before being removed. All needles that are used are single-use and sterile. 

What do Acupuncture needles feel like? 

Acupuncture needles are so fine that most people don't feel them being inserted. The normal feeling is a mild tingle or a dull ache which can then be very relaxing.

 

How many treatments do I need? 

It is usual to have weekly sessions, for around 5 or 6 treatments to begin with while your body responds. The frequency of this can then reduce accordingly. 

Will my insurance pay for Acupuncture?  

Many insurance companies will cover Acupuncture treatment. Please check with your insurer before receiving treatment if you are unsure. 

Will I need to get undressed? 

The majority of the Acupuncture points used during treatment would usually be on the arms or lower legs, therefore loose clothing is appropriate. However, if working on a specific condition, such as the lower back then it would be necessary to get to this area. A gown will be provided for you to keep covered.
