Frequently Asked Questions
What is acupuncture ?
Acupuncture is a process of stimulating energy points, where the therapist uses fine needles, in order to improve the flow of energy, relieve pain and improve various health conditions. In addition, other methods may be used by a therapist, depending on the problem in question: application of heat (usually a hot lamp), moxibustion; or pressure techniques: cupping, tuina massage or acupressure.
The choice of stimulation points and methods is determined by the acupuncturist and depending on the client’s state of health, location of pain and symptoms. Palpation of the areas and meridians involved as well as the so-called “energy balance” based on the examination of signs and symptoms according to the paradigms of traditional Chinese medicine.
What to expect during an acupuncture session?
During the first part of the session, the acupuncturist will make diagnoses and ask you many relevant questions depending on the symptoms you came up with.
Afterward, he will determine the right method to use for the case in question: such as needles, gua sha massage, or other.
The duration of the session will be one hour, after which you should have pain relief.
If you have arrived with emotional issues, the therapist will talk to you and seek to get to the heart of the condition and try to guide you to potential solutions.
Are there any side effects of acupuncture?
Although minimal and occasional, some side effects are possible. Normally, these reactions go away on their own or are corrected during treatment and are rarely a problem for the client. These effects are: slight bleeding, small bruising (bruising) and / or tenderness at the needle insertion sites.
The National Institutes of Health (Consensus 1997) reports that acupuncture produces very little or no side effects and that this represents a marked advantage over some treatments offered by modern medicine.
How many sessions do you need?
The number of treatments depends on the severity of the disease, its course, its age and above all on the patient’s vitality. In acute cases, close sessions are often necessary. In chronic cases, treatments may be more spaced out and aim to improve or stabilize the patient’s signs and symptoms as much as possible. The acupuncturist can better specify the treatment plan at the time of the first consultation or after a few sessions.
