During each visit, the tongue is observed and noted for changes to its color, size, shape and coating. The patient’s pulse is taken at three different levels and positions, and quantified by its speed, depth, strength and general quality. An overall picture of the patient’s health is created by carefully assessing these primary areas.
After the above process is completed, treatment begins, based on the individual’s condition. Needles are carefully inserted into proper points on the body, where they remain for approximately 30-40 minutes while the patient relaxes in a soothing environment. After a treatment, many people report feeling calm and centered.
If the patient should feel any discomfort, it is usually minimal and passes very quickly. Patients are encouraged to relax during the treatment in order to help reduce any discomfort.
We provide soothing music and/or aromatherapy to facilitate relaxation in a warm and caring environment. In addition, your Acupuncturist remains close-by to further ensure your comfort during the treatment.
For example, needles inserted into a bony area such as the hand, need not be inserted as deeply as with areas that have more flesh, such as the gluteals (buttocks).
