WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AN ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT?

Before treatment, we’ll have a chat with you about your symptoms, level of pain and lifestyle factors that might be contributing to the issue.

During the procedure, you’ll lie down on a clean, comfortable, padded table. We’ll talk you through the specific areas of the body we’re going to focus on and where we’re going to position the needles. Usually, the needles are inserted around the area of pain, but sometimes the acupuncture points are located elsewhere on your body.

Understandably, many patients are concerned about pain. You can rest assured that acupuncture is not considered painful – in fact, in many cases, you won’t even notice the needles going in!

The needles usually remain in place for 10-20 minutes. During this time, we may gently manipulate the needles to maximise the healing effect. Over the course of the treatment, you’ll feel your body unwinding and relaxing. Once we remove the needles, you’ll leave feeling refreshed, energised and ready to take on the world!
