Your initial visit typically lasts 60 minutes and starts with a review of your health history and a health assessment. This helps the acupuncturist establish where you are in the healing process and come up with a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
The actual treatment takes place on a massage table. You remain clothed or partially unclothed for best access to certain areas. When needles are inserted, you experience anything from no-sensation to that of a fleeting pin prick.
Our approach at Orlando Holistic Acupuncture is to focus is on your warmth and comfort and one of our acupuncturists remains in the room during your session to check in on your comfort level throughout the session. After the session, many people feel a sense of well-being, peace and relaxation that can last for days.
If you are at Orlando Holistic Acupuncture to treat an acute condition, you may only need a few sessions. However, to treat long-standing, chronic conditions it may require a longer period of time to address. At the end of your initial visit, the acupuncturist will discuss with you treatment options that best fits your health goals and busy schedule. Subsequent visits last 45 - 60 minutes.
