What does an Acupuncture Session involve?.
After your consultation, your registered Acupuncturist, who has studied for four years for a bachelor of health science, will insert between 8 and 10 ultra fine acupuncture needles into key areas on the body.  This is to treat various symptoms.  While you may feel the benefits from a single treatment however your Acupuncturist may recommend additional sessions for optimal results.

About acupuncture needles. There are several types of acupuncture needles. …Acupuncture needles come in different gauges (diameter) and lengths to be used on the different areas of the body where they are to be inserted. The needles used nowadays are mostly very fine — they vary from 0.12 mm to 0.35 mm in diameter.

An Acupuncture treatment may also involve the use of cupping, tuina, moxibustion and heat lamp therapy.

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammationblood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Tuina

The term tui na (pronounced “twee naw”), which literally means “pinch and pull,” refers to a wide range of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapeutic massage and body work. Tui na is not generally used for pleasure and relaxation, but rather as a treatment to address specific patterns of disharmony.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy which consists of burning dried mugwort on particular points on the body. It plays an important role in the traditional medical systems of China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, and Mongolia.
