Acupuncture, Alternative Medicine
The initial consultation takes one hour including needling, during which the acupuncturist will ask many questions regarding your presenting symptoms, diet and lifestyle. Tongue and pulse diagnosis may also be used. The goal is to gather as much information about you and then create a treatment program that is specific for you.
The number of treatments you need depends on your condition. In most cases, clients experience a reduction in symptoms within a few sessions.
Pre-sterilised disposable needles are gently inserted and left to work for about 20 minutes. Acupuncture is painless because the needles are very fine (around 0.2 mm in width). Once inserted, you may feel mild tingling around the site, warmth or heaviness, or even nothing at all.
Our Acupuncturists might use other techniques including:
Cupping – suction designed to bring Qi and blood to the acupuncture point.
Moxibustion – burning herbs held over or applied to acupuncture points.
After a session of acupuncture, you can expect to feel relaxed and refreshed, but specific responses depend on the individual. For instance, some people feel energised, while others feel sleepy.
Acupuncture is available at Pure Botanicals on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday.
