Treatments

What Takes Place in a Treatment?
A  thorough case history of the patient is taken on the first appointment. Acupuncture points are selected and then gently needled for 10 to 20 minutes. The needles are sometimes stimulated by micro movements of the needles by the therapist. The patient usually feels within minutes a deep sense of relaxation. Depending on the condition heat is sometimes applied to the needles or injured areas. In my clinic I also use infrared heat and moxabustion. Moxabustion is a Traditional Chinese treatment that uses moxa, a substance refined from the mugwort plant to heat needles or acupuncture points. The 1st appointment takes about an hour after that they are 45 minutes in length .
