What is a TCM consultation like?

Updated: Aug 10, 2022

If you have not yet had your first approach to Chinese medicine, let me tell you what a consultation generally looks like. 1) The first half of the consultation we will discuss your symptoms in depth and their possible causes. 2) Then we will start the treatment with needles, moxibustion, and/or cupping. We will let the needles act for approximately 20 min. while you listen to relaxing music. 3) One day after your first consultation, I will send you your customized treatment plan that includes aspects of nutrition, supplementation, infusions with medicinal herbs, and lifestyle to impact your life holistically. 4) We will meet again a week later to continue the treatment and monitor progress. A complete cycle of acupuncture consists of 8-10 sessions; you will begin to notice changes from the first sessions.

As you have seen, the consultations seek to cover all your physical and emotional needs, in addition to giving you the perfect opportunity to take a nap since one of the effects of the needles is to induce a state of perfect relaxation. Nevertheless, it is important to note that there is a possibility of receiving a complete and successful treatment without needles if you feel uncomfortable by being punctured, or if you live in another city and would like to have a virtual consultation. If you have any questions about what conditions can be treated with Traditional Chinese Medicine, or what is the ideal treatment for you, leave me your comments below. I will be happy to help!
