What To Expect from Acupuncture Visits

During your first office visit, Dr. Rosquist will ask you at length about your health condition, lifestyle, and behavior. He will want to obtain a complete picture of your treatment needs and behaviors that may contribute to your condition. Please inform Dr. Rosquist about all treatments or medications you are taking and all medical conditions you have.

Acupuncture needles are metallic, solid, and hair-thin. People experience acupuncture differently, but most feel no or minimal pain as the needles are inserted. Some people feel energized by treatment, while others feel relaxed. Improper needle placement, movement of the patient, or a defect in the needle can cause soreness and pain during treatment. This is why it is important to seek treatment from a qualified acupuncture practitioner. Treatment may take place over a period of several weeks or more.
