5 Element Acupuncture Dublin - Treatment Information
Acupunture Treatment Information

Your initial appointment at my Five Element Acupuncture Dublin practice, takes up to three hours and includes a thorough medical and personal history, description of complaints, a review of the functioning of the systems of the body, and a physical examination. This includes the taking of the Chinese pulses [usually felt at the wrist] from which the practitioner can determine the state of the energy in each of the major organs and functions. Using the diagnostic tools of Worsley Five-Element Acupuncture, an assessment is made of the condition of your Ch'i energy and the underlying cause of your condition is determined. From all of this information, your acupuncture treatment plan is developed, unique to you.

Thereafter your appointments are generally scheduled for one hour. Prior to each treatment, you will have ample time to talk about how you've been, how you feel, and what's happening in your life, which is essential information for me as a practitoner to determine exactly the treatment that is called for at that time. The pulses are read and moxa and/or needles are applied. The response to the treatment will be assessed by reading the pulses. Dietary and other lifestyle recommendations will be discussed at appropriate times throughout treatment.

I work in a holistic way. This means understanding you as a complex being, as well as your symptoms and your medical history. The focus will be on finding out how I can help you to get the most out of this powerful system of medicine.

You have probably noticed that when you are stressed or overworked you are more likely to become ill. Conversely when you are on top of the world, your health is rarely an issue. For this reason, finding out what makes you thrive, as well as how you can avoid stress is a vital part of the treatment process.

Most people find acupuncture relaxing and often feel very calm after a treatment.
