Going for first session of TCM acupuncture what to expect?

Hi, I'm a 43 yr old woman with obesity and am having difficulty losing weight and exercising due to severe back pain and exhaustion and decided to try acupuncture.  What can I expect from my first session and typically how many sessions are ordered?

I understand your concern. Losing weight can be very difficult and becomes more difficult the older we get.  A good acupuncturist should not only have you on a acupuncture and herb plan but also a dietary and support plan as well.  You can expect two to three pounds a week if all is going well.

Hope this helps
