An acupuncture session described
In North America, disposable surgical steel needles and a herb called moxa are often used during acupuncture treatments. Needles are inserted into points on meridians (networks of interconnecting lines of energy in the body) in order to stimulate the body's own healing forces. In this way, we move the energy towards a dynamic and harmonious balance which is specific to you.
As the life force is stimulated various sensations are often felt. Some may experience a feeling of energy moving along a pathway in their body. It may feel tingly, warm, or expansive depending on the location. Others experience no feeling at all, not even at the insertion of the needle.
After the session
The approach at Inner Harbor Healing
Initial (Introductory) Session
After this initial session you will have a sense of whether to continue with our work together and to book your next appointment. (Please see the section Choosing a Practitioner)
The sessions following our initial meeting, will consist of both treatment and in-depth review of your health profile. Based on this, we will figure out a feasible plan for treatment.
The number of sessions in a course of treatment will vary, dependent on your health concerns and the degree of your involvement in treatment.
A note about treatments
Although acupuncture and the associated modalities which we will use provides tremendous benefit in the healing process, treatments should not be thought of in terms of being a quick band-aid solution. Nor are they a cure-all for everyone.
While acupuncture may not be able to alleviate the source of all of everyone's symptoms, it is a medium for engendering awareness of our individual expression of life force. In this way, treatment offers each of us the possibility to learn more deeply about ourselves on a very intimate level.
If you have an interest in increasing your self-awareness and moving through personal blocks, you may experience benefit from these sessions.
