Your Visit

What will happen in my first treatment?

The key to effective treatment is a correct diagnosis, not only of the presenting problem but the underlying pattern of disharmony as well. In TCM we are not so much concerned with Western diagnostic labels but we search for energetic imbalances from Chinese Medicine perspective. It can often be a case that two patients with the same 'disease' will receive a different treatment. Each patient is unique with their constitution and different sets of symptoms, and is seen and treated as such.

To determine the imbalances, you will be asked detailed questions in your initial consultation. In addition, pulse on radial artery is felt as well as your tongue is looked at.

First consultation is usually longer, about one hour. Every other visit tends to be between 45 to 55 minutes and it reflects the changes that happened since the previous treatment.

How many sessions will I need?

The number and frequency of treatments required depends on several factors, including the condition being treated, for how long you have had it, also your age, constitution, general fitness level and other circumstances. Reaction to acupuncture and the speed of recovery can vary immensely from person to person, even for the same condition. Some people may notice improvement already after the first session, for others several sessions are needed in order to feel noticeable change.

Results are dependent not only on my therapeutic skills but also on how much you are prepared to adhere to the treatment plan and in some cases how well you are able to implement lifestyle modifications where necessary. In chronic disorders regular weekly visits for at least a few weeks or months may be needed.

Generally speaking, the sooner you come, the better.

Does it hurt?

Acupuncture should not be a painful treatment and the most frequent comment I hear from my clients is that “it was very relaxing”. For a vast majourity of them (there is always a few exceptions) the needle insertion is either not felt at all or only a slight prick may be felt as the needle goes through the skin. During treatment, patients may experience heaviness, numbness, a distending feeling, tingling etc. as a result of their own energy (Qi) getting in contact with the needle.
