What all acupuncturists at TMed in Geneva have in common is their ability to be attentive to the needs of each person. It is important that you feel comfortable with your therapist and that you have a trusting relationship with him/her.
At TMed, your specialist answers all your questions about your health, your feelings during and after treatment, and your concerns or fears about treatment.
A few words about the treatment at TMed: we ask you to come 15 minutes before your first appointment in order to fill out a form. Once completed, you are then invited to join the therapist's office.
At the beginning of the session, the therapist asks you questions about your state of health and your lifestyle and carries out a diagnosis by pulse if necessary. Once the diagnosis is complete, you will be invited to change into soft cotton pajamas so that you can feel comfortable during the treatment. Our treatment rooms all have heating that the therapist can adjust according to your needs.
When you are well settled, the acupuncturist introduces fine and sterilized needles into the acupuncture points corresponding to your diagnosis.
Once the needles are in place, you can rest or even fall asleep during the exposure time, which can last up to 45 minutes. The therapist stays in the room with you if you wish or live you alone.
We wish your experience at TMed would be enjoyable at every step of the treatment and you could enjoy taking care of your health and rejuvenating yourself.
