What is an Acupuncture Session Like?

On your first visit Rachel will discuss your needs and administer the first treatment.  She will recommend follow up visits as needed.  Generally patients are seen one time per week, every 2 weeks for anywhere from 2-4 visits depending on how acute or chronic the condition is.  Some patients are seen once, then encouraged to call on an “as needed” basis.

Sessions last from 30 min to 1 hour.  Needles used are sterile, disposable and used one time only.  The number of needles used varies greatly from patient to patient.

You don’t need to wear any special clothing; you will be in a private room and gowns, sheets, and towels are provided.  After a session it is common to feel tired and possibly sore.  It is suggested you drink extra water and use heat to alleviate any soreness as needed.IMG_4898
