Acupuncture: What to Expect

Before any acupuncture needles are inserted, Chet takes his time to make a diagnosis through palpating muscles and acupuncture points. Acupuncture needles are very thin and most people feel little to no pain with insertion. After needles are inserted, the patient is either left to rest, or a number of other modalities might be used. Shiatsu Massage, cupping, gua sha or moxibustion might be used for part the treatment if needed.

Shiatsu Massage: is like acupressure using the acupuncture points and channels to create harmony in the body without the use of any needles!

Cupping: uses glass cups to create suction to relieve pain and loosen tight muscles, and increase blood flow

Gua Sha: uses a tool to deeply rub the muscles to relieve pain, relax muscles, and increase blood flow

Moxa: is a Chinese herb that is burnt for it's deep penetrating heat to warm acupuncture points.

Most people find acupuncture to be very relaxing; and there is no need to be nervous about the needles before an appointment. If it was really painful, people wouldn't keep coming back for more!
