What to Expect From Acupuncture Treatment

It’s completely normal to feel nervous before your first acupuncture session.  In actuality, most people enjoy the experience, finding it relaxing and therapeutic. Read on to become informed about what to expect with acupuncture treatment and get on with the healing!


Your consultation will involve meeting with your acupuncturist to learn about your health history and lifestyle, as well as an examination. Chinese medicine involves different criteria than Western medicine. The exam will include the tongue, as well as determining different acupuncture points. The information gathered will help your acupuncturist develop an individual treatment plan.

First Treatment

Once a plan is determined, you are ready for your first treatment. You should dress in comfortable, loose clothing, both for relaxation purposes and for access to your acupuncture points. Your acupuncturist will choose your meridians (set of pathways in the body along which vital energy is said to flow) and begin treatment.

Sterile needles will be inserted shallowly into the skin. Acupuncture needles are completely different from those used for injections. They are hair-thin and flexible and at most times you will feel nothing. Once the needles are in place your acupuncturist will leave the room and allow you to relax for up to a half hour. Take advantage of this time to relax! Your practioner will check on you periodically, and remove the needles on completion. Again, this is painless!

After Treatment

Some may feel tired after treatment due to the relaxing nature of the visit. However, there is no downtime and you can return to your daily routine immediately.

Treatment Duration

Duration of treatment depends on a host of circumstances.  You and your practioner will discuss your progress and expectations. Some find improvement after one session, while others need several sessions to see improvement.
