What To Expect
When you come in for an acupuncture treatment, you will relax, fully clothed, in a comfortable reclining chair. On your first visit, a short history will be taken to learn about your concerns. You will then be guided through an acupuncture treatment. Dr. Rosenthal will gently place hair-thin, sterile needles into specific points. Many patients experience a deep feeling of relaxing calm and many fall asleep.
Because each person is unique, Dr. Rosenthal will develop a treatment plan that is customized for your body and needs. The number of treatments you will need depends on the type and severity of your condition. Acupuncture is a process. It is very rare for an acupuncturist to be able to resolve any problem with one treatment. Especially long standing, chronic problems. You may be asked to come in one to three times a week, for a few to many weeks. This is key to you attaining the health you want. And that’s our commitment to you – to help you attain that health.
The acupuncture style practiced at Rose Acupuncture is a system called the “Balance Method,” created by Dr. Richard Tan. The Balance Method is unique in that especially when treating pain, results can be apparent almost immediately. In others, it takes a few treatments to notice a change. This system is amazingly effective in the treatment of a wide range of conditions.
Whatever the case, results are what we are all interested in.
Needles are used one time only and disposed of safely at the end of each treatment.
