What Happens during an Acupuncture Treatment?
Only the best acupuncture Miami shows our competence to begin your healing. No need to worry if it’s your first time or are a regular, our service is always operating at its finest.
Firstly, you will be asked of your health history and medical background to ensure the most practical approach to your illness or pain. Remember, we alleviate your pain, not the other way around. We are with you every step of the way to your personalized healing so your attention to details about your history would be beneficial.
After a thorough assessment of the information you have provided, the application of the sterile needles will begin. The needles are inserted to different depths at strategic pressure points in your body. Our most asked question during this part is “Does it hurt?”. Our honest answer is most people don’t even feel them at all, the most you may feel is a light prick. Remember that the needles are fine and thin to ensure the littlest discomfort. Around five to twenty needles can be used depending on the concern at hand.
Next would be the needle manipulation, wherein the needles are gently moved or twirled, as well as applying heat and mild electrical pulses to the needles.
The needles would remain in place for 10 to 20 minutes while you relax and let acupuncture do its healing process. In most cases, there is no discomfort upon removal, the same during the beginning insertion. After the procedure, you may feel energized and relaxed already. But not all treatments affect everyone at the same time, if your symptoms stay and don’t begin to improve within a few weeks don’t hesitate to contact us as we continue to personalize your sessions.
What are the Benefits of Acupuncture?
Acupuncture relieves and decreases discomfort in your body, either from ailments, sickness, post-operative causes and more. From musculoskeletal problems such as back pain and neck pain (which is popular among working clients), to migraine, nausea, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and infertility. The goal of acupuncture is to restore balance to your body and not to keep you on acupuncture if not necessary anymore. It depends on your effort and perseverance as well as your acupuncturist’s knowledge and expertise on your concern.
