What to Expect

At Community Acupuncture Albuquerque, we treat clients fully clothed in reclining chairs, using mostly points on the arms, legs and head. The acupuncturist will spend a few minutes reviewing your paperwork and asking you some questions. He or she will feel your pulse, look at your tongue and make other observations to determine how to treat you. We treat clients fully clothed in reclining chairs, so it is good to wear clothes that are loose and come above your elbows and knees easily. We use around 10-15 extremely fine acupuncture needles which are about the thickness of a hair and are placed at specific points on the acupuncture pathways known as channels or meridians. When the needles are inserted you may feel nothing at all or you may feel some warmth, tingling, traveling or swelling sensations. You will generally start to feel relaxed and may even have a short nap. Once you wake up or start to feel restless, you can ask us to remove your needles. People generally stay as long as they like which is often between 30 minutes to over an hour. Allow yourself at least an hour from start to finish for a treatment. First time appointments require a few more minutes for paperwork and getting oriented to the clinic. You may find the treatment very relaxing.
