If you are looking for Acupuncture in Brisbane CBD you have come to the right place. Below are a few common questions people have about acupuncture treatments. For more information on Acupuncture in our Brisbane CBD clinic, visit the Fusion Acupuncture website.
This is probably one of the most common concerns by those considering acupuncture treatments. Pain is not an aspect of treatment we are looking for. Patients often describe sensations such as ‘dull ache, tingling, warm or spreading’ and these are all indications that the point which has been needled is active and doing its job. I always work within the patients comfort levels and only needle the points which are most necessary for a therapeutic outcome. At your first appointment I will explain how we locate acupuncture points and talk you through what I am doing.
Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to your first appointment as we have some simple paperwork for you to complete. Any information you provide is private and confidential. During consultation I will ask what you are seeking treatment for and ask a variety of questions about your health history and current health. Some of the questions may not seem related to your main concern, however your honest answers help to form a precise diagnosis and understanding of how the problem developed over time. It also helps to determine if there are other issues which can also be treated during your acupuncture sessions.
Treatments last between 45 minutes to 1 hour. I would advise that you do not come to a treatment on an empty stomach and to bring with you any relevant test results or scans you have already had. In addition to acupuncture, treatments may include moxibustion, gua sha, electroacupuncture, ear acupuncture, cupping, dietary advice or Chinese herbs.
This largely depends on the individual what is being treated. Your practitioner will discuss expected treatment outcome times with you at your consultation.
