    The Acupuncture Treatment Process

    Starting with a health assessment of 25-30 minutes, your treatment will take up-to an hour. The acupuncturist will discuss your medical history and create a plan according to your needs. After this process is complete, your treatment will begin!

    The treatment starts when the acupuncturist inserts very thin, sterile needles into the skin at various depths to balance the body’s energy. The needles will stay in place for approximately 15-30 minutes.

    After your first treatment you will have follow up visits consisting of a brief assessment followed by an acupuncture treatment. As a part of your treatment, your registered acupuncturist might recommend a treatment combining three additional techniques of Tui Na, Gua Sha or cupping.

    The process is not painful, most clients don’t feel anything but the ones who do describe it as a tingly feeling.

    Tui Na

    Tui na, which is also called “Chinese medical massage,” uses hands on manipulation designed to promote circulation and reduce pain. It uses multiple techniques like acupressure, stretching, rolling, rubbing and grasping to release tension in the myofascial tissue.

    Gua Sha

    Gua sha is an ancient Chinese healing technique that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool made from metal or plastic causing your skin to appear red for 2-3 days. It improves your circulation and offers a unique approach to better health by reducing issues like chronic pain.

    Cupping therapy

    cupping therapy is an ancient form of therapy that involves placing cups made from silicon on the skin in order to create suction, thus facilitating healing through increased blood flow, and furthermore, removing toxins from the body. The treatment leaves circular red marks on the skin which eventually fade in 2-5 days.
