First Time Acupuncture – What To Expect

If you’re nervous about first time acupuncture Hawthorn specialists can put you at your ease. Perhaps the biggest concern of many people is that it hurts, and although there is a sensation when the needles are inserted, the process really doesn’t hurt. However, many people also have an emotional reaction, which is often surprising but quite normal, especially if you have been putting treatment off for some time. But before you even have any treatment, you’ll probably meet with your acupuncturist to answer medical related questions, and ask any that you have. Your specialist will tell you it’s important to remain as still as possible during your acupuncture session, and to not expect immediate results; depending on what you’re being treated for, it will probably take several sessions. And the tiny needles can be used to treat many ailments, including pain, depression, insomnia, diarrhea and toothache.
