Acupuncture for Pain
What is involved in an Acupuncture session?
In an initial consultation, there is a lot of discussions so that you as an individual can be assessed, questions are always encouraged. Tiny acupuncture needles (thinner than a hair follicle) are inserted into specific acupuncture points and then you are encouraged to rest. Many patients fall asleep or into a deep state of relaxation.
A follow up session involves a quick assessment and discussion prior to the treatment and then you are left to relax and rest. Helping you RENEW your health sooner.
What other modalities may be included in my session?
Your session may include depending on the diagnosis Chinese herbal medicine, bowen therapy, cupping, gua sha or moxibustion (click on these titles on the top of the web page to learn more).
Often specific stretches are prescribed for you to do daily in between treatments to keep certain muscles and ligaments loose and relaxed.
This can reduce compensatory postures and make a lasting difference in your conditions of pain.
