Does acupuncture hurt?
Placing the needles is in general painless. The prick sensation is very brief and could be compared to a mosquito sting. The needles are as fine as hair and leave no marks. When the needles are placed, the patient can feel sensations of energy flux which brings relaxation.
In rare cases where a puncture point is painful, Sylvie Wyler will immediately take the needle away.
At what depth are the needles stuck in?
The needles are inserted between a few millimeters up to 1 or 2 cm deep. Since the insertion of the needles are done in intermuscular space or directly in the muscles, but never in the nerves or veins, therefore the depth has no incidence in the sensation.
The acupunture professionals control the depth and angle of the insertion of the needle, defined for every puncture point.
In what condition are the needles?
The needles used are sterile. More, they are of unique use except for aesthetic acupuncture or the use of gold needles are necessary. In this case the needles are individual and kept in the personal file of the patient.
How many sessions are necessary for an optimum result?
According to the problem to be treated, 3 or 4 continuous sessions at 1 week interval are necessary. At that moment, Sylvie Wyler takes an observation with the patient. According to her or him, she decides if it is suitable to continue the treatment, either every week or at a more distant rhythm.
In case of a chronic disease, 5 to 15 continuous sessions would be necessary. And later on, 1 session per month could be considered according to the case.
How much time should there be between sessions ?
For prevention, according to the patient, the rhythm of 1 session per month or every 3 months (every time seasons change) could be ideal.
In the case of treatment sessions or acupuncture help for other treatments (chemotherapies) would depend on the kind of problem, the patient has and the reaction of his body to the treatment.
What should we be careful of before the treatment?
Ideally, the patient should not be on an empty stomach.
What should we be careful of after the treatment ?
After an acupuncture session, the patient can feel a slight tiredness or an intense relaxation that could last a few hours.
Hematomas may sometimes appear where the needles were stuck, but they are totally painless.
Are there any cons-indications for acupuncture ?
Before the third month of pregnancy, precautions should be taken. Acupuncture is not recommended for children under 7 years and old age people and weak, as well as people suffering from hemophilia or lymphedema.
This is why Sylvie Wyler proposes a previous interview for any treatment to be informed of the past treatments followed by the patient and diseases.
Are the allopathy treatments compatible with the acupuncture ?
The acupuncture is compatible, possibly complementary to allopathy treatments.
