What To Expect In Your Initial Acupuncture Treatment

Updated: Apr 18

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

In an initial acupuncture treatment, a qualified acupuncturist will assess the patient's medical history and check the tongue, pulse, symptoms, and overall health. This evaluation is essential to determine the appropriate type of acupuncture treatment required, the number of needles to use, what acupuncture points to use, and the duration of the procedure.

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

The initial acupuncture treatment may include 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, an initial acupuncture treatment aims to establish an individualized treatment plan that addresses the patient's specific health concerns while promoting overall wellness.
