If not, and if you are considering acupuncture treatment for the first time for any reason, then you will certainly have some questions. That’s why the helpful experts at NCCIH have made this helpful video post to answer all of the most frequently asked questions.
In it, they will describe what you can expect during your acupuncture treatment. Be sure to watch for their expert information, and read on to learn more.
What to Expect During Your First Acupuncture Session
Before your session begins, you will be interviewed at length and asked some questions you might not expect. You will be asked about your medical history and a number of other relevant things. Your session may be covered by your medical insurance, but it is probably a good idea to make sure this is the case beforehand.
After your treatment, you may find that the acupuncture session was able to offer relief for more than just the symptoms for which you took the treatment. Acupuncture treatment accesses pain pathways for specific types of pain. If you have more than one type of pain, you may find that other sources of pain fall along the same pathways treated in your session. It is a good idea to eat before your treatment.
