Acupuncture: What To Expect

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
– Lao-tzu

Initial visits at Be Well Acupuncture OKC are 60 to 90 minutes. Toni will take your health history, take your pulses, and look at your tongue. This provides her with the information she needs to create your unique treatment plan.

During your first exam, Toni will spend time getting to know you and your health concerns. She may ask you a wide range of questions about your symptoms, eating, sleep habits, emotional state, and anything that may offer her some insight into your health.

Your treatment plan at Be Well Acupuncture OKC

Once Toni has gathered enough information, you’ll receive a comprehensive diagnosis and a treatment plan that will explain:

  • Your Imbalances
  • A Recommendation For Treatment frequency
  • What types of treatment you will receive

Getting the most out of treatment

For the best treatment results, keep a few things in mind:

  • Please show up on time
  • Don’t eat a large meal before your visit, but a light snack is a good idea
  • Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes
  • Be sure to discuss any questions or concerns with Toni
  • Refrain from overexertion, drugs or alcohol for at least six hours after treatment
  • Follow your treatment plan between visits
  • Keep all of your appointments, as each visit builds upon the previous ones

How treatment works

To treat any Qi imbalances, fine, sterile, single-use disposable needles will be inserted at specific acupuncture points along the meridian pathways. We will concentrate on acupuncture points related to specific organs, based on your unique issues and symptoms.

Toni may include other related therapies in your treatment plan, such as cupping, Gua Sha or moxabustion. Herbal remedies are another important aspect of acupuncture and TCM, and it is important to understand and follow your practitioner’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 your well-being. Together, we 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’ll learn to nurture your body, mind, and spirit.

Acupuncture is not an instant fix.

True healing takes time and dedication. Depending on your current health and symptoms, you could feel better right away, or you may need treatments for weeks, months or years to achieve the results you want. Your acupuncturist can give you an idea of what to expect. With a little patience and an open mind, you’ll be on your way to health and vitality.

Acupuncture and TCM offer a safe and effective holistic health care system. This natural approach can both resolve symptoms and enhance your overall health.

By taking the right steps and planting the seeds of health, you are on the road to a healthier you!
