Your treatment will begin with an in depth assessment which will include ROM testing and palpation of soft tissues. Your massage therapist will go over your health history and any issues you want to address. You may or may not be asked to fully or partially undress to your personal comfort level and lie under the linens on the table.
Your therapist will begin inserting thin needles into specific points on your body. The needles are typically left in place for 10-30 minutes, during which time you may feel a slight tingling or a sense of relaxation. After the needles are removed, the practitioner may also offer additional therapies, such as acupressure, cupping or therpuetic massage to further stimulate the flow of energy in your body. While some people may feel immediate relief after an acupuncture treatment, it’s important to keep in mind that the effects may take time to fully manifest.
It is important to maintain a dialogue on your comfort levels so your therapist can make adjustments with the pressure and techniques being utilized. Please understand that not all issues require deep tissue work or prolonged deep pressure. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat it as needed.
Most people find acupuncture to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience, and continue to use it as a regular part of their healthcare routine. It’s important to drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins that were released during the massage. Your therapist may also provide you with some aftercare advice, such as remedial exercises, stretching or self-massage techniques to help facilitate your rehabilitation and progress. A return date for your treatment plan will also be suggested to keep you on track.
