So! You're planning to visit an acupuncturist? First, do some Self-Help!
Think about your problem and try to marshal your thoughts about it. A little forethought goes a long way.
The following might help jog your thoughts - but they don't cover everything ...
Clear answers to these questions could make an enormous difference to the diagnosis your acupuncturist reaches. And you may find that the answers even help you "self-help" the pain away.
What circumstances, (eg the weather, the time of day, what you are doing, who you are with, what you have been thinking or talking about, what you have been feeling, after or before food/drink, menses, Monday morning, Friday evening…. etc) seem to correlate with the onset or duration of the pain?
What were the circumstances surrounding the original onset?
Is there any other kind of discomfort that you have?
Self-help can pinpoint answers that only you know, and to your acupuncturist they can make an enormous difference!
The other question is what kind of acupuncturist to consult. Think in the way you would if consulting any professional, such as a lawyer, architect or private doctor. You would probably prefer someone well-qualified, with experience and preferably with a good track record.
Of course, since you'll be discussing very personal matters, you'll want someone you can trust. If you know of someone that a friend has visited, with good results, that might be a good place to start.
All members of the British Acupuncture Council have spent many years in training, with good clinical supervision. Members maintain their standards through regular CPD - Continuing Professional Development - and they are all fully insured.
