5 The Treatment


After the practitioner has decided what points and therapy you need they will prepare for your treatment by initially cleaning and disinfecting their hands.

In many cases the first treatment will consist of attending to some   points on your back followed by some acupuncture points on either your hands or feet. The procedure on your back can often take between 20 – 30 minutes whereas the points on the hands and feet are only a few minutes in total. We also recommend that you sit on either a stool or chair and lean on the treatment couch for your comfort when we are attending to the back.

During the treatment your pulse will be taken regularly.

Acupuncture treatments are designed to be a calming therapy and invariably   conclude with you relaxing on the couch for a while.
