Acupuncture diagnosis involves understanding the patient’s individual pattern of disharmony, and then determine the appropriate point prescription and adjunct therapies to help the body heal itself. This treatment normally consists of the insertion of about 5-10 (sterilized, single-use, hair-thin) needles. The needle insertion is normally painless. The patient relaxes for about 30-40 minutes with the needles in. Patients often fall asleep during this time.
The patient may receive some lifestyle recommendations. The number of additional treatments depends on the condition and the health of the patient. Acupuncture is a therapy and can take 3 treatments to feel a big difference in your condition. The more serious the condition, the longer it takes to successfully heal.
The needles are very fine, sterile, individually packaged and single used.
After the treatment they are disposed of in a bio-hazard container, not to be used again.
