Private acupuncture has been the dominant form of acupuncture treatments in the United States since it migrated here in the late 20th century. In this type of treatment the patient and acupuncture physician will have both the interview and treatment in a private room setting. The practitioner will briefly converse with the patient about their medical history and current signs and symptoms and then have them lay down on a treatment table either face up or face down and proceed to place needles in specific points to facilitate a change in the given condition. Depending on the points chosen the patient may need to disrobe and put on a gown. The practitioner will then leave the room so the patient can relax during the treatment time – anywhere from 15 – 45 minutes. At the end of the treatment the practitioner will return and take out the acupuncture needles.
