What to Expect on Your First Acupuncture Visit

Untitled design (3)

During your first visit, you’ll receive a full assessment which involves an in-depth review of your current symptoms and medical history. 

During your first visit, we will also include an acupuncture treatment by inserting very fine "sterilized" needles under the skin at certain pressure points. You will experience very little discomfort.

After the insertion, the needles may be gently moved or twirled to relieve any pressure or swelling that might be present in a particular area. In addition, the practitioner may also apply heat or a mild electric pulse to the needles to stimulate healing.

Typically, the needles will remain in place for fifteen to thirty minutes while the patient lies still and relaxes. When removed, no sensation of discomfort is usually experienced.

  • Stress And Anxiety

Your first initial visit will also include treatment based on the assessment. Francine will insert very fine "sterilized" needles under the skin at certain pressure points. Because the needles themselves are very thin, you will experience very little discomfort. It is also possible to receive laser acupuncture which is a needless acupuncture modality.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Acupuncture Safe?
One of the most striking aspects of acupuncture is the almost complete absence of adverse effects and complications from its use. Most patients find that the treatments are relaxing and cause minimal discomfort. Acupuncture is a safe technique, provided that practitioners are properly trained and follow appropriate techniques. TCM trained practitioners of acupuncture use single-use, sterile disposable needles and have been trained regarding precautions and contraindications to acupuncture. It is important to inform the practitioner of your medical history, medications and if you are pregnant or could possibly be pregnant, as acupuncture treatment may have to be modified or may not be appropriate.
How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture is the stimulation, by insertion of needles, of specific points on the body which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions. Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain-relieving neurohormones. Acupuncture affects the functioning of the hormonal system, promotes a decrease in inflammation, increased circulation and relief from pain.
Are there any side effects?
One of the great advantages of acupuncture is that it is very safe. Other than an occasional bruise, there are no side effects.
Can I receive acupuncture when I am pregnant?
Acupuncture is safe during pregnancy and can help relieve many pregnancy and postpartum conditions. Because there are some acupuncture points that are contraindicated during pregnancy it is important to inform the practitioner if you are pregnant. We highly recommend acupuncture during through your first trimester to help assist embryo development, prevent miscarriage, and address any other symptoms that may arise.
How can I prepare for my acupuncture treatment?
The best way to prepare is to eat a snack or a light meal before treatment so the you body has sufficient energy to work with. If possible it is best to wear loose clothing so that your arms and legs are accessible for treatment. After treatment we recommend you drink a glass of water to help stabilize your energy.
What are the advantages of acupuncture?
One benefit to acupuncture is that it is a drug-free way to optimize health. With drugs, people often develop a tolerance, or the need for an increased dosage to achieve the same required effect. However, this does not happen with acupuncture. In addition, acupuncture allows the doctor to immediately examine a person's response to the treatment and adjust it if necessary.
