What is Involved in an Acupuncture Session?
Prior to performing acupuncture treatment for chronic pain, counseling is provided so that you know what to expect in advance. Before beginning the session, an assessment of your overall health is also performed. Since each treatment is unique to the individual needs of each patient our exact approach varies accordingly.
During the acupuncture session, the acupuncturist first swabs each area with alcohol prior to proceeding. Next, very thin needles are used to tap into the area where the pain is experienced. A certain number of needles will be placed at various pain points based on the severity of your particular pain. How deeply the needles are inserted also depends on each patient's individual situation.
Since each person reacts differently to the treatment, the acupuncturist will also evaluate how the treatment stimulates the body’s ability to resist and overcome chronic pain and related illnesses. After the treatment, patients can expect to experience relief from their chronic pain as well as improvements in other areas as well such as sleep, digestion, and nausea among others.
