What happens during an Acupuncture Treatment?
At your initial appointment a full health history is taken. Questions are asked regarding health, symptoms and lifestyle, plus I use pulse and tongue diagnosis to understand the whole pattern, effectively detect specific imbalances of Qi and create a treatment plan that works for you.
Patterns of Disharmony
Once the imbalances of Qi are detected, I place fine, sterile needles at specific acupoints along meridian pathways. The needles can unblock obstructions and bring harmony to your energetic body. Qi then circulates freely throughout the body, providing adequate nourishment to cells, organs, glands, tissues and muscles. This can eliminate pain and regulate body systems, restoring balance and harmony and activating the body’s ability to heal itself—leading to optimal health.
Clear Direction for your healing
You and I collaborate to ensure your treatment plan is realistic for your real life. This comes with suggestions for when to come back, plus life tips such as stretches, sleeping positions, workplace considerations, foods to consider, seasonal diets and more.
