What to Expect From Your First Acupuncture Treatment

Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT) could be the treatment allergy sufferers have been waiting decades for. This incredibly effective acupuncture treatment can help with even the most severe reactions, and now it’s finally available to people in Lynchburg and beyond! 

When people first consider acupuncture or Alpha gel treatment, they may have had it recommended by a friend, doctor, or someone else they trust. They’re open to treatment, but they don’t know what to expect for their first acupuncture session. 

It’s okay to feel a little nervous at first. New things can always take a little to get used to, but you should know that you have nothing to worry about. If you’re going to be visiting an acupuncturist for the first time, we have some tips that can help you prepare. 

Come With Your History 

You’ve probably talked a bit about what brings you to the acupuncturist when you were making your appointment. Regardless of what you discussed over the phone or via email, come prepared with a list of your concerns and past treatment for allergies. 

Take time to think about any diagnosis you’ve received from a doctor and any known allergens. Make a list of your food sensitivities, trouble you may have in a certain home or indoor settings like animal dander and dust, and mention any sensitivities you have with chemicals or medications. 

There’s no such thing as being too thorough during your first appointment. The more information you can give the person treating you, the more comprehensive a treatment plan they can provide! 

Prepare for Testing 

Once you’ve discussed your concerns with the specialist, you can expect Bio Energetic testing to be done. This test is very important to the acupuncture process for SAAT

The process may sound complicated, but it’s done with a homeopathic vial that’s tuned to the specific energetic signature of a chosen allergen. This vital step is used to confirm your sensitivity and help with precision needle placement. 

It’s important to keep in mind that locations are unique to each individual’s body. Your acupuncturist will look for the most electrically conductive location in your ear using a specialized safe volt meter. 

Receive Your Treatment 

Once the acupuncturist is able to determine the best location for needle placement, the treatment can begin! They’ll insert a very small acupuncture needle then hold it in place with a piece of medical adhesive tape. 

Your treatment doesn’t end once the needle is inserted. In order for treatment to be effective, the needles must be worn for about 3-4 weeks. Once that time period is up you can come back to the clinic for removal.  

Depending on the severity of your allergies and the number of allergens you’re sensitive to, you may have to come back for additional treatment. Be sure to talk to your acupuncturist about any concerns or questions you may have to see what they recommend.
