What can I Expect from a Typical Acupuncture Session?

You are here:

During the first session, your physiotherapist will explain to you what acupuncture is and how it will be done. With your consent, your physiotherapist will carry out acupuncture by applying fine needles to the affected areas. Depending on the condition, the needles will generally be left in situ for between 15 to 30 minutes in order to stimulate therapeutic effects.

Your Physiotherapist might also choose to use “electro-acupuncture”, which is when an electrical current is passed through the acupuncture needles to heighten the stimulatory effect.
