   What to Expect

What does it feel like?

Acupuncture needles are solid and very thin, almost as thin as a human hair. They are often painless to the patient. Once in place, you may feel a tingling or heavy feeling where the needles are, or you may feel nothing. Most patients enjoy their acupuncture treatment and find it relaxing. Afterwards, many patients feel extremely relaxed; others feel invigorated and energized.

How long will a treatment session last?

The typical treatment session will last approximately 1 hour. Your first treatment will take longer, as the acupuncturist will be gathering a substantial amount of information from you in order to optimize your treatment outcomes. Once the needles are in place, you will usually rest with them in for about 20 minutes.

What other modalities are provided beside acupuncture?

Depending on the patient’s problem, an acupuncturist may provide other services in addition to acupuncture. For example, herbal formulas, external liniments, cupping, or Chinese bodywork may be appropriate. Diet and exercise suggestions may also be offered as a way for the patient to contribute to the improvement of their own health and well-being.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed will vary depending on the patient and the condition being treated. Many patients experience dramatic results from their first treatment. In some cases, a single treatment may resolve the problem. In other cases, patients feel no change immediately after their treatment, but will notice relief over the next few days. Long-term, chronic problems usually require many treatments to bring the body back into balance.

What should I do to prepare for treatment?

Wear loose, comfortable clothing. Make sure you have eaten something within a few hours before your treatment. Before your first treatment, bring along any information that will be helpful in understanding the history of your problem. Be sure to ask your acupuncturists any questions that my be concerning you. And most of all, relax.

Is acupuncture safe?

The licensed, professional acupuncturists at Wind Point Acupuncture use only sterile, single-use (disposable) needles. When performed by a fully trained, licensed practitioner, acupuncture is extremely safe.
