What happens during an acupuncture session?
The session begins with an evaluation. I will ask you about your reason for consulting and your general health. Then, I will develop a treatment plan specific to your condition. You will receive an acupuncture treatment during the first appointment. For the treatment, you will lie down on an acupuncture table and I will place the needles. Depending on your condition, it is also possible for me to use other approaches, such as the electromagnetic lamp, the moxa or the electrostimulator.
Do the needles hurt?
The sensations experienced during an acupuncture treatment vary, depending on the patient. In general, the needles do not hurt. They are very fine and do not normally leave any marks. The needle feels like a slight mosquito bite and lasts only seconds. After a few minutes, you may feel warmth or a tingling sensation near the needle.
I often work with patients who are afraid of needles, and I have developed a very gentle approach. Many of my patients report not feeling the needle insertion. If you have any concerns, please let me know. I can adapt the treatment according to your needs.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of recommended sessions will vary depending on the severity of the condition to be treated and the patient’s general condition. I will be able to discuss the treatment plan with you on the first appointment.
