Acupuncture Complimentary Consultations
When I tell people what I do for a living, it generates a lot of interesting discussion. “Do the needles hurt?” is one of the most common (and natural) questions! I remember my own thought process as I prepared to receive my first acupuncture treatment…
“What will this feel like?”
“What changes will I notice?”
“How does this work?”
“How often do I need treatment?”
Everyone has questions about acupuncture before starting treatment, and so I offer all new clients the opportunity to come in for a complimentary consultation. During this time, you can ask questions, learn more about Chinese Medicine and how it works, see (and even experience) the needles, all to help you decide if this modality is right for you. Most people are pleasantly surprised that the needle insertions are not only painless, but that the experience can be profoundly relaxing.
