What to expect
The initial consultation will begin with a private conversation about your basic medical history, along with a discussion about your goals for your upcoming therapy. We want to make this specific to your needs, and we want to get to know you, so please don't be shy if you have any questions or concerns.
After the initial consultation, we will bring you to one of our treatment tables and you will choose from one of your recommended treatments from our menu. We will insert the acupuncture needles in specific locations on the body, while you lie on your back in a relaxed position. You will then have the opportunity to close your eyes and relax for the remainder of your session.
Although the treatment experience is medical in nature, it is also meant to be restorative. In Chinese medicine the mind and body are together seen as one system, so bringing the mind a sense of relaxation and peace is an important aspect of relieving your physical symptoms.
Acupuncture needles are very thin, single-use sterile, stainless steel needles. The sensation of insertion can range from completely painless to a slight discomfort. Once the needles have been inserted, most people experience a sense of deep relaxation, similar to a meditative or dreamlike state.
*Here at Rest we are focused on balance through more subtle relaxation treatments. If you have a more specific complaint or medical condition, you can visit us at our Union Square office Samadhi Acupuncture where we provided personalized private treatments.
