Congratulations. By choosing acupuncture, you have taken a great step forward toward a more balanced, healthy, lifestyle. The ancient practices of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have helped millions of people regain and maintain health.
Since this system of health care may be different than other care you have received, it is only natural to have questions. Read on to find out what to expect and how to get the most of your treatments.
Acupuncture and your health
Acupuncture and TCM take a holistic or whole-body approach to health. This mean your acupuncturists will take into account your whole self, not just your symptoms, in order to get the root of your health concerns. You will work together to find out how factors like your lifestyle and emotional and mental well-being may be affecting your health.
Getting the chance to really discuss your health concerns with your care provider and having your provider really listen, may be new to you. Think of it as your opportunity to form a partnership for better health. The more you take part in your healing process, the more successful it will be
Your First Visit
Initial visits generally last from thirty to ninety minutes. Your acupuncturist will take a detailed health history, perform a physical exam, and provide you with your unique treatment plan.
During your first exam, your acupuncturist will spend time getting to know you and your health concerns. You may be asked a wide range of questions about your symptoms, eating, exercise, sleep habits, emotional states and anything that may offer insight into your health. Your acupuncturist will also employ diagnostic tools that are unique to acupuncture and TCM such as tongue and pulse diagnosis.
Your Treatment Plan
Once your acupuncturist has gathered enough information, you will receive a comprehensive diagnosis and a treatment plan that will explain:
- Your underlying imbalances
- Your timeline of care
- What types of treatment you will receive
How Treatment Works
At the core of this ancient medicine is the philosophy that Qi (pronounced “chee”), or vital energy, flows throughout the body. Qi animates the body and protects it from illness, pain and disease. A person’s health is influenced by the quality, quantity, and balance of QI.
To treat any Qi imbalances, fine, sterile needles will be inserted at specific acupuncture points along the meridian pathways. Your acupuncturist will concentrate on acupuncture points related to specific organs, based on your unique issues and symptoms.
Your acupuncturist may include other related therapies in your treatment plan, such as cupping, Tui Na, Gua Sha, or moxibustion. Herbal remedies are another important aspect of acupuncture and TCM, and it is important to understand and follow your acupuncturist’s directions in order to get the most benefit from these treatments.
Your role in the healing process
Your actions are a key component of your treatment plan. Focusing on your health and committing to a healthy lifestyle are the best steps you can take for you well-being. Together, you and your acupuncturist can heal your imbalances and help you achieve harmony and balance.
Even after your symptoms are resolved, acupuncture, can assist you in maintaining your health, and possibly prevent future imbalances. The more you incorporate acupuncture and TCM into your life, the more you will learn to nurture your body, mind, and spirit .
