Frequently Asked Questions

How should I prepare for my first treatment?

You should come to the Acupuncture session after having a meal or at least something to eat. Having Acupuncture on empty stomach may make you dizzy. Come to the session in a calm state of mind and relaxed and be prepared to answer questions that might not seem relevant but that make sense for the diagnosis.

What should I expect from my first session?

The first session starts with the interview which establishes the Chinese Medicine diagnosis on which the treatment will be based. This generally lasts 60 min. There will be another 30 min of acupuncture session in which the proper treatment will take place consisting of placing the fine acupuncture needles into specific points on the skin according to the Chinese Medicine diagnosis already established.

Do you help treat terminal or chronic illness?

Yes, I do. I am professionally interested in treating terminally ill and cancer diagnosed individuals with a view to improving well being and fight the side effects of the chemo and radio therapy. The patients can experience an improvement in their general condition feeling generally better.

Do those needles hurt?

While the vast majority of points used do not cause any pain, on the slight occasion there will be a point which might cause a little discomfort when the needle is inserted however it fades away once the needle has been inserted.
