What to expect during your Treatment?

Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist, have many tools to use and not just needles.  Depending on your symptoms and TCM diagnosis, some of the below maybe used during your treatment and will be explain before used.  

Most acupuncture points are used on the lower legs and arms, to save you getting undressed I would suggest to wear loose fitted clothing so your lower legs can be exposed.  If not, it is no problem and a towel can be place over your lap.  Some patients like to wear a pair of shorts.

Mind and Body Balance

You don't have to have something wrong with you to have Acupuncture,  it can be part of a wellness program on a monthly, quarterly or whenever you feel necessary.

 

Stress

The signs of stress can vary from one individual to the next.  Stress has physical, behavioral and emotional effects on our health and well-being.  In general, acupuncture is believed to stimulate the nervous system and cause the release of neurochemical messenger molecules. The resulting biochemical changes influence the body’s homeostatic mechanisms, thus promoting physical and emotional well-being.   Factors that affect stress levels include work, alcohol, smoking, exams, pregnancy, divorce, moving, death in the family, lifestyle, drugs, poor nutrition and unemployment.  Acupuncture can help to support you through these challenging times.
