What does a treatment entail?

The initial treatment involves a complete Chinese medical diagnosis, herbal consultation, and diet/lifestyle advice. Your acupuncturist will review your health history form and ask detailed questions regarding your health and chief complaint. A tongue and pulse diagnosis will also be performed. Once a diagnosis and treatment plan have been developed, sterile, single-use disposable needles are inserted at specific points. Treatments are painless and last approximately one hour depending on the condition. Many people feel deeply relaxed and also fall asleep during their treatments.
