For Acupuncture Treatment I recommend wearing loose clothing so that sleeves can be rolled up above the elbows and pant legs can be pulled up above the knees. It is important to eat something couple hours before. Not necessary to have a full meal, but at least a snack can help your body have enough energy to maximize the treatment’s potential. Receiving acupuncture on an empty stomach may lead to lightheadedness, dizziness or even fainting. Treatment usually takes around 30 minutes and during this time you can experiencing arrival or Qi (energy in Traditional Chinese Medicine) with sensation of distension, heaviness, warmness or coldness, electric-shock feelings around the needle. Usually it lasts for first 5-10 seconds after needle insertion. For treatment I am using great quality sterile single use stainless steel acupuncture needles. These needles are very thin. Often people are surprised how little they feel both at insertion and after they are in place. In fact, it is not uncommon for clinics to be full of snoring patients! So be ready for small nap during treatment. Acupuncture treats more than pain. I find it unfortunate when patients cancel appointments because they are sick. Not only can acupuncture help treat the common cold and stomach viruses, according to the World Health Organization, it is helpful for a wide variety of problems including mental and emotional stress, digestive issues, skin diseases, neurological disorders, infections, childbirth, and diabetes to name a few. One treatment is often not enough to make all your health problems gone. I will most likely recommend subsequent treatments. Some issues need to be treated longer, some shorter, but generally effective course of treatments may consist from 3 to 10 treatment depend on severity and duration of existing diseases. Of course, chronic problems can take longer, maybe several courses, some easy one can be relieved even for one-two treatments. Part of your healing process will happens after treatment and you can promote self-healing by getting recommendations and doing homework like exercises, diet or taking supplements. Book your treatment today and feel better soon!
