Healing Rivers Acupuncture, New Braunfels, Tx

What to Expect


I will discuss your symptoms with you. After asking diagnostic questions, I will evaluate your pulse and tongue characteristics and formulate a syndrome diagnosis. The needles will be inserted into specific places called acu-points in the body based on the diagnosis. Stimulation of the acu-points occurs with the insertion of a very thin, close ended, sterilized, stainless-steel disposable needle. Please plan on 1½ hours for an initial consultation and treatment, follow-up treatments are 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Some of the responses from an acupuncture treatment are lightness, destressed, decreased pain, relaxed, happier, more focused, etc. Results from treatment range from immediate relief to delayed relief. The results of treatmet depend on the condition being acute or chronic and what energetic pattern is at the root of the problem. Some results take consistent weekly treatments whereas others might need only a few treatments to get better.

Patients should have a small snack before their treatment.  Please do not wear any purfumes or colognes as other patients are sensitive to chemicals.
