Acupuncture is a treatment based on the principle of TCM. Evidence showed that acupuncture can stimulate the production of substance which are beneficial to health and promote healing.


When you come for an acupuncture treatment, you will have an initial evaluation. It mainly includes examining your tongue, checking the quality of your pulse and general observation of your condition. Sometimes, other parts of the body could be examined. The practitioner would also ask you questions about your lifestyle, medical history, general health status, and current complaints. The information obtained contributes to making TCM diagnosis and formulating treatment plan.


During treatment, very fine sterilized and disposable needles are inserted into different acu-points. The needles will be rotated periodically. Sometimes, they are connected to a safe electrical current, which may cause a soothing sensation. Other techniques, such as moxabustion (warm needle) and cupping may be used for certain conditions. After the needle is inserted, a patient usually feels some tingling, distension, heaviness, or electrical sensation at the insertion site or traveling up / down the meridian.


Acupuncture is safe and has no significant side effects as compared to other kinds of treatment. The side-effects that can rarely happen include mild bruising, local spot bleeding, fainting, and the needle lodged in the skin.


As to how many treatments a patient will need depends on the condition. Acute or temporary problems may just need a few treatments. Chronic conditions may need regular treatments over several months. One may start out with several treatments per week, then decrease to weekly / monthly treatments. Each session usually lasts about 45-60 minutes.
