Does acupuncture hurt?
Most people feel no pain at all. Sometimes there is an uncomfortable sensation for the first few seconds after needle insertion and then it goes away.
How many treatments will I need?
Acupuncture is not a one-time fix, it works best in a series of treatments. 6-9 are often recommended to start with. For acute conditions, more treatments in a short time are effective. Regular treatments spaced farther apart are better for chronic health problems. Your acupuncturist will give you a treatment plan on your first visit.
What types of payments do you accept?
Cash, checks, and all major credit/debit cards. Most flexible spending accounts cover acupuncture, or you could also use your health savings account to pay for treatments. We do not take insurance.
How long does a treatment take?
Ideal treatment time with needles in is 45 minutes.
Is acupuncture safe?
Absolutely. The needles are very small, much smaller than the needles used for injections and vaccinations. The needles are sterile and after they are used one time, they are discarded.
Acupuncture doesn’t add anything to or take anything away from the body. It either encourages the body’s own healing power to take effect or very rarely nothing happens.
