Description of service

The service included getting acupuncture done for a group of symptoms that included weak digestion, general fatigue, and difficulty falling a sleep at night.


Review of Service

The therapist asked me a series of questions about my personal habits such as times of sleep, rates of digestion, and bowl movement, etc.. The he asked me to lay down and started sticking the needles in. He explained to me that he uses disposable needles and that there's isn't any risk of contamination. Once he finished positioning all the needles, he asked me to continue laying down for about twenty minutes. The whole procedure was not painful at all and even pleasant while the needles are in and I felt a gentle energetic feeling.


Tips

There isn't much I can say in this category except that the treament was successful and that it's important to come for a few sessions. Once session is not going to solve the problem the way a dentist could solve the program in one or two sessions. Here, according to the theory of that type of medicine, there need to be reprogramming of the energy pathways in the body. After one session, there's a tendency of the new energetic pathway to regress to the old pathway, so repeating it for a few time usually helps the new pathway stick.
