Your first visit to our Center will consist of a
1.5 hour initial consultation. This consultation will include a complete
evaluation followed by a treatment. Diagnosis begins with
questioning your past and present medical history, lifestyle,
diet, exercise, habits and occupation. Visual examination of
your face, body, and
tongue is the next step. Lastly, your practitioner will
palpate your pulses in each wrist to determine which meridians
(energy pathways) are not functioning properly. All of the
information gathered will help your practitioner create a
personalized healthcare program for you.
The actual treatment consists of the insertion of the thin,
sterile needles into the points on the appropriate meridians.
Usually you may feel nothing at all or a slight pinch,
followed by a tingling, warm, heavy sensation. The needles
are left in the body for ten to thirty minutes, during which
time, most clients feel a heightened level of relaxation. Symptomatic
relief may occur immediately or may take longer depending on the
severity and duration of the condition.
