What to expect
You will be given a thorough assessment before being recomended to try a course of acupuncture. If you are hoping to have acupuncture on the first session make sure you have eaten something within two hours of coming to see us. After deciding that acupuncture is appropriate, we will clean the area we wish to treat and usually insert 8 to 15 needles. Needles remain in for around 20 minutes, during which time we may use various subtle techniques to stimulate them.
Patients often report feelings of heaviness, heat, flowing or tingling during this time. We will ensure that you are not experiencing any adverse effects and usually suggest waiting for around ten minutes before driving. Sessions are usually repeated weekly.
