What you Can Expect In A Treatment Session

A Full Professional Assessment – Traditional Acupuncture treatment starts with the taking of a full case history, this is what lets your Acupuncturist understand your situation and how best to help you.

Treatment –  Acupuncture involves the gentle insertion of very fine needles into specific Acupuncture ‘points’, these points when combined appropriately have therapeutic effects on the body. People often  wonder if treatment hurts because they are used to pain from injections in hospital or at the GPs. Acupuncture needles are much much finer than this (about 0.2mm) not much wider than a human hair and so the feeling is not like being injected.
Acupuncture treatment can also involve a variety of other techniques such as the use of moxibustion, chinese cupping or guasha.

Patients usually lie down on a comfortable couch or sit for treatment

Time – An initial consultation usually lasts about 1 1/2 hrs and includes treatment. Subsequent sessions usually last around 45 minutes depending on what is needed.
