What is my first acupuncture/shiatsu session like?
First of all, you will be asked to fill in a form about your symptoms and medical history etc.
Following some questions, your diagnosis (pulse, tongue etc.) will be carried out. According to this diagnosis, the acupuncture or shiatsu will be adjusted to your particular condition.
As with shiatsu, you will find that acupuncture is gentle and comfortable as opposed to how you may imagine from needles. It is virtually painless and even relaxing. Both acupuncture and shiatsu focus on the energy aspect of the whole body and naturally bring out a sense of harmony.
At the end of the session, you may be given some practical advice for your condition. Some qi-gong exercise, for instance. Any questions you may have during/after the session are welcome.
And please be assured that, in this clinic, fine sterilized disposable needles are used and I provide safe, hygienic and proper care at all times.
