What will my acupuncturist do?

During the initial exam a full health history will be taken. Questions will be asked regarding symptoms, health and lifestyle.   I also may check pulses and your tongue and may conduct a physical exam. This information is then organized to create a complete, accurate and comprehensive diagnosis of where Qi has become blocked or imbalanced.  After the interview process, you will receive an acupuncture treatment.  Very fine needles will be inserted into a variety of acupoints.  When they have all been inserted, you will rest for about 20-30 minutes in a dimly lit room with soft music or a guided meditation.  This time resting is vital to the outcome of the treatment.  The more relaxed you get during the visit, the better the results of the treatment.  Visits may last from 45-90 minutes.
