Examination or Herbal Consultation
In an Exam/Consultation, the practitioner learns your medical history and assesses your face, body, build, shape, abdomen, back, the shape and color of your tongue, and the quality of your pulses. Some acupuncturists test for weakness along your meridians and in the muscles. Some may test electrical activity. This could take 30-40 minutes.
KangFu Acupuncture treatment is safe when performed by a qualified, licensed practitioner. Licensed acupuncturists insert sterile disposable needles safely. Bleeding is very rare, and then minimal. Most acupuncture patients describe the treatment as virtually painless; possibly less painful than plucking out a hair. Sensations range from nothing to mild tingling, numbness and a dull ache, and electrical pulsations.
