What to expect

Here are some information and tips that might be helpful to you before coming in for a treatment, or two!

typical acupuncture session

  1. The first treatment will normally last between 90 to 120 minutes. (The follow-up treatments can be from 60 to 90 minutes) 
  2. We will review and discuss your concerns and what we want to work on together. 
  3. You will lie either face face up with your clothes on or off (your choice, unless we want to needle a large area of the back).
  4. Sayo will palpate certain areas of the body such as your abdomen, neck, hands and feet to determine which points to use, and then insert sterile needles on targeted points.
  5. Once the needles are in, you will relax for about half an hour — because of the deep relaxation effect, your mind calms down, and many people fall asleep.
  6. Sayo will take out all the needles work on the back of your body if necessary and finish the treatment with some light tuina (meridian massage).
  7. In some cases, if Sayo thinks it will be helpful, she might perform cupping or recommend some herbs for you to take.

How soon will I feel better?

With the Master Tung Acupuncture technique, your pain may go away as soon as the needles are in. However, generally speaking, just like physical therapy and other natural healing processes, acupuncture works from within and can require time.
