What Does Acupuncture Feel Like?

Many first-time patients are concerned that acupuncture needles will feel like hypodermic injections at the doctor’s office. They won’t Acupuncture uses hair-thin, flexible needles that you will hardly feel when I insert them. When I gently stimulate the needles they may produce a unique sensation that Oriental medicine calls deqi. Patients often describe deqias a heavy, achy pressure, or spreading, traveling feeling. You may also feel an “electrical” sensation moving down the meridian pathways, though this is less common. Most patients find these acupuncture sensations deeply satisfying and leave the treatment feeling relaxed both mentally and physically.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Each patient is different. Generally, if a condition is more acute, patients respond faster than if it has been a chronic condition. Depending on the condition being treated, its severity, and how you respond to acupuncture, a treatment plan varies for each patient and will discuss thoroughly the length, number and frequency of treatments, and other recommendations. Preventative treatments and treatments for general well-being may also be scheduled on an as-needed basis.

Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first acupuncture appointment a complete comprehensive intake Form will be performed by a practitioner.

The acupuncture intake form asks questions about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history. These questions are important because the holistic approach of traditional medicine takes everything into account. Your current symptoms may not seem related to past health issues, but our bodies are complex landscapes and everything that happens to them leaves its mark. After reviewing your intake form, we will discuss your condition while examining your pulse and tongue, these are two of the basic diagnostic methods of traditional medicine. Once the needles are inserted, patients are expected to remain lying down while the needles are in place. During the treatment, you would feel deeply relaxed and your body falls into parasympathetic mode which allows the body to start healing. It is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time. Treatments may be combined with herbs, cupping, moxibustion, meditation, massage, Qi gong, or light exercise. These techniques are added to further relieve symptoms, speed-up recovery time and pave the way toward health, vitality, and longevity.

STEPS OF CARE​

Relief Care
Most patients begin acupuncture treatment to receive quick relief from pain, discomfort and other symptoms. This phase is called relief care. This type of care allows you to feel better, faster. Each visit builds on previous visits, paving the way toward eliminating your initial problems and complaints. Frequent visits over the next few weeks or months may be needed to further reduce your symptoms. Your condition, age, lifestyle and the quality and quantity of your energy, or Qi are all factors in your treatment frequency. After relief care, you will notice that your aches or pains have been dramatically reduced or eliminated.
1
Corrective Care
The next phase is corrective care. Signs and symptoms have been reduced and visits are less frequent. This phase maintains and supports the changes you have achieved and provides a foundation for deeper healing. This is also the time when underlying problems can be addressed. Even though you may not be experiencing symptoms, it is important to continue to build, strengthen and support your body. Stopping care now could disrupt the progress you have already achieved, and even simple activities could cause a relapse.
2
Maintaining Wellness
Maintenance and wellness care is the next phase. This type of care preserves all the progress you have made. Visits may be monthly, every other month or seasonal. Much the same way you keep a car running smoothly with regular oil changes and tune-ups, periodic visits to your acupuncturist can keep you running smoothly. These preventative maintenance tune-ups further strengthen your body’s resistance, keeping you healthy, balanced and potentially free from illness. Little problems may be caught before they become major concerns. Qi (vital energy) imbalances can exist in the body for years without showing any symptoms. For this reason, regular acupuncture evaluations and treatments are necessary. Wellness care is the root of healing. In ancient times, an acupuncturist was only compensated as long as patients remained healthy. If they became ill, it was the doctor’s duty to get them well again without compensation. Receiving regular acupuncture, combined with regular exercise, a healthy diet and lifestyle, can keep you feeling and performing at your best.

Chose Dr. Heidi Guiyab and am so happy I did. I have never tried acupuncture before, but nothing was helping with the arthritic pain in my knee and neck/shoulder area and I have tried everything except surgery. Because of Dr. Guiyab's holistic approach to the intake process, she learned of my other issues that were also keeping me from living my best life such as insomnia, anxiety, and the consumption of too much wine. Dr. Guiyab is very knowledgeable of where to place the needles on my body to bring about healing. She also uses cupping and heat therapy - I find both to be very soothing. I started with four consecutive sessions. After my first session, I slept like a log that first night and a little better than average (for me) on subsequent nights but I still needed my prescription sleeping pills. After three sessions I started to notice that I was less anxious about things and my consumption of wine started to decrease a bit. After five sessions, my level of pain decreased, falling asleep no longer required a prescription pill, and the desire or habit of drinking wine at the end of my work day just went away! I just had my sixth session and my arthritic pain is at such a low level that I don't constantly say "ouch" as I do normal activities such as walking or reaching. I haven't been this optimistic in a while because there were so many things keeping me in a "funk." I will continue working with Dr. Guiyab and I highly recommend her services. I have decided that acupuncture will be a fixture in my life to keep me feeling healthy, happy and whole."
