What To Expect In Your Initial Acupuncture Treatment

Updated: Dec 20, 2023


Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves the insertion of thin needles at specific points on the body known as acupuncture points. The stimulation of these points is believed to restore balance and promote the natural healing process of the body.


In an initial treatment of acupuncture, a qualified acupuncturist will first conduct an assessment of the patient's medical history, check the tongue, check the pulse, symptoms, and overall health condition. This evaluation is important to determine the appropriate type of acupuncture treatment required, the number of needles to be used, what acupuncture points to be used, and the duration of the procedure.



During the acupuncture session, the acupuncturist will insert the needles into the specific acupuncture points identified during the assessment. The needles are generally left in place for up to 20-30 minutes while the patient relaxes.


The initial acupuncture treatment may also include the use of other traditional techniques such as Auriculotherapy (Ear Acupuncture), Cupping, Moxibustion, Guasha, Tuina Medical Massage, and herbal remedies or BePure products to improve overall health and wellness.



Overall, the goal of an initial acupuncture treatment is to establish an individualized treatment plan that addresses the patient's specific health concerns while promoting overall wellness.
