What should I expect on the first appointment?
What should I do for my first Acupuncture appointment?
Bring a list of current medicine and any supplements e.g herbal, vitamins, etc.
It is advisable to wear loose clothing that gives access to the arms and legs easily. Most of the points used during a treatment session are on the lower arms and legs, the abdomen, back and head.
Usually the Acupuncturist will do an assessment of the tongue and pulse. It is helpful to avoid foods that colour the tongue, brushing the tongue surface and tea/coffee on the day of the appointment to ensure the coating on the tongue is in natural state. Alcohol, caffeine based drinks and heavy meals in the 2-3 hours prior to the appointment as they can interfere with the pulse.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Fine, sterile, single application needles are used during the treatment. These needles are extremely fine and are designed to be inserted into the tissue easily. There can be a slight pricking sensation on insertion of the needle and if a Qi sensation is obtained the range of sensations can vary from a dull ache to mild tingling. Once the needles have been inserted, the sensations settle down and usually you won’t feel anything. The needles are removed after 35 minutes and usually you won’t notice this happening. Slight bleeding can occur and usually is stopped by applying cotton swabs to the area. Bruising can occur and sensitivity in the area can be experienced, depending on the techniques used.
What our clients say
My experience at the haven was warm and professional. My therapist put me at ease as it was my first time getting acupuncture. I felt well informed and listened to. Not only did I see results after a couple of sessions it also created benefits in other areas of my life. I was more relaxed and less stressed. I would highly recommend them.Sabrina

Holistic Healing Haven provides amazing acupuncture for a range of different things. When I first went I was very nervous of needles but they were very patient and caring and now I really look forward to the sessions. Pauline, the owner, is very knowledgeable on alternative healing and takes a personal interest in their client’s well being.Patrick
My health has improved dramatically since starting acupuncture. It helps me relax and I can feel the benefits that the needles are achieving – which don’t bother me, due to Pauline’s approach. Even after the session, she is always doing research and finding ways to improve each subsequent treatment, which is a testament to her professionalism.Maria
