Initial sessions are about 75 minutes and follow up sessions are usually 60 min. To save you time, intake forms can be printed and filled out before your visit.
Before: To have the most comfortable and effective treatment make sure you are well fed and hydrated before each session; your body needs fuel to heal . This also means no caffeine or cigarettes at least an hour before.
During: Every acupuncture session is personalized to each person each day and will include one or more of the following therapies:
Cranio Sacral Therapy
Jin Shin Jyutsu
Active Release Technique
Most people find Susan’s acupuncture sessions a deeply relaxing and spa-like experience.
After: if you are being treated for physical injury or pain, move deliberately and symmetrically for at least 8 hours after session- this allows your nervous system to integrate the change. For example bending and twisting, kickboxing, awkward housework, slouching in a couch for hours can take your body out of proper alignment. The same goes for a heavy purse or high heels immediately after.
