Your initial assessment is one hour and 30 minutes and includes a comprehensive interview and an acupuncture treatment. Laurina will ask you questions about your main complaint as well as your health history and lifestyle. All of this information is important in determining your Oriental medicine diagnosis, which forms the basis for your "acupoint prescription" (that is, which points on your body will receive needles or pressure).A regular treatment is usually 45 - 60 minutes long, but may be shorter if that is the best treatment option. You will lie on a treatment table or sit in a chair, depending on what is appropriate for you. Depending on your treatment plan, you will have some acupuncture needles placed, usually on your arms and legs or you may have acupressure and microcurrent.Sometimes you will be left to relax for a bit to let the needles and/or microcurrent work. You will be provided with a call buzzer in case you need something adjusted. Many people experience a deep sense of relaxation, and often, rejuvenation. (One of the great ways to use acupuncture and microcurrent is for illness prevention and health maintenance).Some treatments plans include ‘homework’ such as stretching and exercises or diet modification.
