What should you expect from an acupuncture visit?

Typically, the first visit involves a health history assessment. Questions you will be asked may seem strange, a little different from standard medical intake questions, but energy flow and whole-body interaction are the keys to diagnosing in Chinese medicine. So, the practitioner may ask to examine your tongue, to feel your pulse to determine energy flow, or ask many questions that may seem to have nothing to do with the primary complaint.

After the initial consultation and assessment is over, a diagnosis is made which may also sound odd to you, so feel free to ask your practitioner what it all means.

Next, a treatment plan is devised.

Extremely fine needles are placed in very specific locations. Upon insertion, one may feel a momentary sharp or stinging sensation; however, many report they don’t even feel the majority of the insertions.

The needles are left in place for fifteen to twenty minutes while you rest quietly in a calm room accompanied by soft music. Many people say they fall asleep during this time, as the treatments are very relaxing.

At the end of the treatment time, the needles are removed and properly discarded. Your practitioner will inquire after your wellbeing, and you will be able to leave.

The visit is normally 60 minutes long.
