What Happens During Treatment?
1. Spend Time To Find a Clear Diagnosis
In your initial consultation, our experienced Acupuncturist will spend time diagnosing your condition, using a wide range of diagnostic tools. The main focus of this consultation will be understanding where the pain is coming from and what is causing it.
2. Find Relief With Acupuncture
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body’s meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of qi through the individual. Acupuncture regards most musculoskeletal problems as an obstruction if qi which is causing the pain, soreness, swelling and stiffness in muscles and joints. Acupuncture will clear this obstruction so that normal function of the whole body can be restored.
The first treatment is very gentle so as not to aggravate your condition. Once the practitioner can see how your body is responding to the treatment, they may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods, including moxibustion, cupping, laser therapy, electro-stimulation and massage, in order to re-establish the flow of qi.
