How are acupuncturists trained?
What happens in a treatment?
Your acupuncturist will then place tiny, sterilized needles at specific points on your body to affect specific organ systems and restore balance and health to your body. Adjunctive therapies such as infrared heat, moxibustion, cupping, or Tui Na will be administered as necessary. You are then left to relax for about 20 minutes before the needles are removed. Most patients experience a deep relaxation during the treatment and leave feeling both relaxed and energized.
Follow up treatments will involve a shorter intake, and discussion of any changes since the last visit. Your treatment will be adjusted each visit to change as your energy changes, so the focus is always personalized for your specific needs each step of the way to wellness.
