Needles Used During a Treatment
Today acupuncturists use fine stainless steel needles ranging from 13mm to 130mm in legnth from 0.20mm to 0.25mm in diameter.
Techniques used during a Treatment –
Here are some of the key techniques used in Chinese Medicine – some of which may be used during your treatment session.
- Acupuncture: Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate and balance the flow of Qi. These points are located along meridians or energy pathways. Acupuncture is often used to relieve pain, manage chronic conditions, and improve overall well-being.
- Herbal Medicine: Chinese herbal medicine involves the use of various plants, minerals, and animal products to create customized herbal formulas. These formulas are prescribed based on an individual’s TCM diagnosis and can be in the form of teas, powders, pills, or topical ointments.
- Cupping Therapy: Cupping involves placing heated glass or plastic cups on the skin to create a vacuum. This therapy is used to improve blood flow, relieve muscle tension, and promote the flow of Qi. It often leaves circular marks on the skin that typically fade within a few days.
- Moxibustion: Moxibustion involves the burning of dried mugwort (moxa) near or on specific acupuncture points. The heat generated is believed to stimulate the flow of Qi and promote healing. It can be used in direct (placing moxa on the skin) or indirect (holding it above the skin) forms.
- Tui Na: Tui Na is a form of Chinese therapeutic massage that involves various techniques, including kneading, rolling, and pressing specific points and meridians. It is used to relieve muscle tension, improve circulation, and promote the flow of Qi.
- Diet and Nutrition: TCM places a strong emphasis on the relationship between diet and health. Practitioners often provide dietary recommendations based on an individual’s constitution and health condition.
- Qi Gong and Tai Chi: These are mind-body practices that involve slow, flowing movements, breath control, and meditation. They are used to cultivate and balance Qi, promote relaxation, and improve physical and mental well-being.
An acupuncture session typically follows a structured process:
- Consultation: The session begins with a consultation in which the practitioner assesses the patient’s health history, current symptoms, and TCM diagnosis. This involves asking questions, observing the patient’s appearance, and sometimes feeling the pulse and examining the tongue.
- Needle Insertion: After the diagnosis, the practitioner selects specific acupuncture points based on the patient’s condition and inserts thin, sterile needles into these points. The needles are typically left in place for about 15-30 minutes.
- Stimulation: Some acupuncture points may be manually manipulated (twisted or gently moved) or stimulated using heat (moxibustion) or electrical impulses.
- Removal: The needles are carefully removed, and the patient may rest for a short period.
- Follow-up: The practitioner may provide dietary or lifestyle recommendations, prescribe herbal remedies, or schedule follow-up sessions as needed.
