What to expect

An initial treatment begins with thorough assessment of all past and present health conditions to see how they may all be related to form a diagnosis in the context of Traditional Chinese Medicine. You may discuss anything that you feel has an effect on your health.

Careful examination of the pulse and tongue are used to determine what organs are being affected and the depth of the illness in the body.

Following discussion, the treatment will begin with approximately 10-20 needles placed on points on the body’s energy pathways. The needles are left in for 20-30 minutes. There may be a dull or heavy sensation where the needles are placed. The needles can be adjusted at any time for comfort.  During the treatment most patients experience a deep state of relaxation and many patients fall asleep.

The first treatment is 1  hour and 15 minutes and the following treatment take 45 minutes to an hour. It is important that you ask any questions before during or after the treatment and that you relax and enjoy the experience!
