What happens in treatment #01

What happens in treatment?

At your first appointment a Full Traditional Diagnosis will be taken, this includes your medical history and you will also be asked about your current symptoms, your diet, digestive system, sleep patterns and emotional state.

Feeling the condition of the ’qi’ on the pulse on the wrist and observing the tongue also form part of the diagnosis. These provide vital information about your general health.

By inserting hair-fine needles into specific points on the body, acupuncture rebalances the flow of ‘qi’. If the ‘qi’ is weak, it will be strengthened and if it is in excess, it will be calmed.

Treatment is aimed at the cause of your problem as well as your symptoms and aims to treat the patient as a whole; this approach can lead to a long-lasting resolution of your problem and an improved sense of general well-being.



What happens in treatment #02

What does it feel like?

Acupuncture needles bear no resemblance to hypodermic needles used for blood tests and injections.

They are very fine and solid so, very little sensation is felt when the needles go through the skin.

When the needles reach the desired point, referred to as obtaining ‘deqi’, you may feel another sensation that is often described as a tingling, heaviness or dull aching around the needle. It is rarely described as painful and lasts for only for 1 or 2 seconds.

Only sterilized, single-use disposable needles are used.
