Frequently Asked Questions at Lok Acupuncture Clinic in Las Vegas

WHAT DOES ACUPUNCTURE FEEL LIKE?

Acupuncture can create a range of sensations for patients – some feel a very light tap when the delicate needles touch the skin in sensitive areas and others feel nothing at all.  The application of acupuncture needles can feel different for everyone but most patients agree that Dr. Lok's treatments are relaxing with minimal discomfort to the patient.  Most patients tell us that it creates a sense of warmth and relaxation across the skin.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TREATMENT?

When we begin your treatments, we first make sure that the patient is comfortable in our treatment rooms.  Once the patient is ready, we will begin the acupuncture process.

There are two types of treatments: Passive and Active.  For passive treatments, we ask that you remain as still and relaxed as possible during the treatment.  For active treatments, you may need to be physically active throughout the treatment.  During your treatment, we will continue to monitor your comfort level at regular intervals.  

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

We encourage patients to wear loose, comfortable clothing to our sessions.  We also provide patients with disposable paper gowns and other appropriate coverings as needed.

DO I NEED TO PREPARE?

No, generally speaking, you do not.  It is important to be as comfortable as possible during your appointment.  We recommend that you eat lightly before treatments so that you can relax during the session, not be distracted by hunger, and not be lightheaded.  We encourage patients to avoid stimulants like spicy food, cigarettes, caffeine, and heavy or fried foods.

HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION LAST?

Your initial visit will last approximately one to two hours.  Follow up visits will vary, lasting 30 minutes to 90 minutes.

CAN I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME?

Yes!  At your discretion, family members and friends are welcome in your treatment room to sit with you throughout your session.

DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING AFTER MY TREATMENT?

For the best results, it’s very important that you drink extra water after your session.  You should also refrain from heavy exercise or intake of alcohol for at least two hours after a treatment.

WHEN SHOULD MY NEXT APPOINTMENT BE?

Acupuncture is a cumulative process.  Treatments are most effective when they are scheduled close together, so that the body can continue to naturally heal itself in a smooth process instead of being interrupted.  Similar to taking medication on a scheduled basis in western medicine for maximum effectiveness, acupuncture also should be continued on a regular basis to stimulate your own body's "qi energy" to expedite the healing process.

WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS?

Please ask!  We welcome questions and are always happy to help patients understand more about acupuncture.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?

The body is a complex system.  Like any medical treatment, the amount of time that it will take for you to notice a difference depends on the individual and the condition.  Some patients see significant results after the first treatment while other patients may see results after a few treatments.  Dr. Lok can give you an assessment on the number of treatments depending on your condition and your body's response to acupuncture.  Generally speaking, acupuncture works to strengthen the body gently, build more balance, and generate a healthier system over time.
