what can you expect from a treatment?
What happens during an acupuncture treatment?
In the first session, an in-depth intake is performed. Some questions may be asked in electronic forms prior to arrival, but most are in a conversational manner during the treatment. Questions will begin with finding out your primary ailments, and then lead to more generalized inquiries about your medical history, sleep patterns, eating habits, body temperature, and emotions. I'll ask many seemingly unrelated questions, but the answers provide me with a clear picture of the root cause of imbalance, so that treatment is direct and effective. After the intake, very fine needles are inserted into acupuncture points as you rest comfortably on a massage table.
Many people notice relief after their first treatment, but the effects are often cumulative and can require multiple treatments for optimal healing.
