Acupuncture is a very old technique, originated from traditional Chinese medicine. Needles are used to stimulate some areas of the body. The goals are to find imbalances in the body and to correct them. This is a holistic medicine, which means it looks at the human being as one entity (the body, the soul, emotional and philosophical aspects, the environment).
What can you expect?
During the first session, the person will be asked several questions, followed by a diagnosis of the pulse and tongue in order to have a good idea of the persons demands and imbalances. Therefore, the first meeting will take more time than the follow-up meetings. After the needles are placed, they will remain in place for 20 to 30 minutes. It is advised to search for calmness in yourself at that time. Soft music can be played.
