Tips for Acupuncture Treatments



Welcome to Vital Pulse Acupuncture Wholistic Medicine

      We are honored and delighted that you have chosen us as you Wholistic Acupuncture Oriental Medical provider

      True to Wholistic Medicine, we strive to provide a blend of ancient Oriental Medicine practices with complimentary

            modern treatments

      We are committed to your treatment being successful

      We look forward to partnering with you to address your health concerns, and we will do all we can to ensure you achieve the

           most successful result possible for you

The doctor-patient relationship requires both cooperation and mutual trust

     We will strive to provide you with the best possible medical care, and ask that you participate in this effort to the best of

          your ability

Acupuncture is a wonderful complement to Western medicine, but it is not a substitute for it. If you think you have a serious,

           undiagnosed problem, you need to see a primary care physician

      If you need a referral, we can provide you with some great options

      In the Spirit of Wholistic Medicine, it is vital that you as the patient take responsibility for you own health

Follow your Medical Doctor's Advice

As with any Medical treatment, healing with acupuncture is a process

      Certain conditions may take time and are influenced by many factors. Over time, things should improve and we will adjust your  

      treatment plan as we proceed. Changes to your condition can happen faster than anticipated so enjoy them

Ask questions whenever you do not understand your treatment or medical advice

Always report any problems you are having with medications, herbs, or other treatments

      Different people react differently to the same treatment or drugs

      It is possible for your physician to properly manage your care only if you let them know about difficulties you are having,

            or if medications are not effective or causing you discomfort

Keep Notes Following Your Treatment, mental or written ones, as to your response to treatment

      This is important information, helping you monitor and recognize changes and or progress

Communitcate this information to your practitioner for optimum treatment outcomes


What to Expect with Acupuncture Wholistic Medicine

      With the insertion of needles you may feel certain sensations, some of which may be pleasant and other may be uncomfortable. 

      You may feel a dull ache, or tingling sensation local to the needle or elsewhere in the body, a sensation of fullness, energy moving

            through the body, relaxation, or a sensation of tightness. That is all normal

      But if you feel anything sharp that is coming from the needle just let us know and we can make adjustments

      After your treatment, you may feel grounded, relaxed, and possibly sleepy. That’s normal with acupuncture


      During the intake you will be asked many questions, some related specifically to your complaint and others seemingly unrelated

      Wholistic Medicine takes into account you as a Whole Person with all your living symptoms to ultimately determine what is

             causing the condition or disease. We treat the whole person, not just the symptom


Tips For Your Acupuncture Treatments

      • Wear loose fitting clothes that can be easily rolled up above your elbows and knees. Also, you may need to expose

             your abdomen from your rib cage to the top of your hips, so avoid one piece suits or dresses.

      • Be sure to have eaten at least a light meal within a few hours prior to arriving

      • Avoid alcohol on the day of your treatment

      • Avoid over eating immediately before treatment

      • For best results, avoid strenuous activity immediately following treatment. Set aside enough time so that you are

             not rushing to and from your visit.

       • Keep a positive attitude and expect positive results

            As we follow through on your treatment plan, look for signs of improvement and take encouragement from them

            Build an attitude that profound healing is possible

            Your belief and expectation has an incredibly strong influence on your body, and is a factor in your healing.
