Your First Visit

Acupuncture treatments are meant to be an experience.  Many say that the process is just as satisfying and relaxing as the result, and at Fredericksburg Acupuncture, we strive to make you as relaxed and pain-free as possible.

By focusing on you as a whole person, we target the source of your problems, not simply their symptoms. The process is really only 4 easy steps:

  1. Intake and Complete Assessment: Your first appointment at Fredericksburg Acupuncture will consist of you filling out an intake form which contains all of the necessary information for us to take our first step in getting to know you and your condition.  As soon as this is done, you will meet with one of our highly trained and qualified acupuncturists who will perform a full body assessment on you.  Using traditional diagnostic methods, we can gather the information necessary to determine a proper treatment plan for you.  This diagnosis consists of employing methods that have been used effectively for centuries.  They include checking your: pulse, tongue, abdomen, fingernails, eyes, facial color, odor, posture, gait, and voice.
  2. Acupuncture Treatment: This is the actual process of inserting hair-thin needles into pre-determined places on your body.  The placement of these needles depends entirely on your condition, which was determined in the assessment and intake phases.  After the application, we allow you to rest for 35-45 minutes at which point the needles are removed.  This time allows the body to absorb and integrate the effects that the acupuncture has created, and many people refer to it as a sort of awake, dream-state where they feel relaxed and almost asleep.
  3. Treatment Plan: We establish this based on the effectiveness of the treatment you just experienced, your specific injury, and other needs you may have.  Often this treatment plan will include once or twice a week acupuncture sessions for 3 to 6 months—remember we are re-training your nerves, this does not happen overnight.
  4. At Home Care—Herbal Recommendations: Herbal remedies are often listed and encouraged in addition to your treatment sessions.  This is because we are focusing on the whole you, and your bodily health includes many aspects.

You will soon notice the amazing results.  The key to acupuncture’s effectiveness is that it comes from a culture that focuses on prevention and wellness.  Unlike Western medicine, which concentrates on urgent care and symptoms, Eastern care places its emphasis on the root of every problem, targeting it at its source and providing you with the ability to live a pain-free, happy, and healthy life.
