If you don’t see your question answered here, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be more than happy to expand on any of these answers as well.
Acupuncture is extremely safe! It is a completely natural, drug-free therapy. Each acupuncture needle is sterile and is used only one time before being discarded.
Acupuncture works for about 96% of people. Only about 4% of people will not be able to experience the effects of acupuncture.
Not usually. You may feel a slight pinch when the needle is inserted, but afterwards the area will just feel a little heavy. This is called the ‘de-qi‘ sensation.
This depends completely on the person and the condition. Some people experience immediate relief, while others have conditions that require more treatments to resolve. Chronic conditions, such as arthritis, take longer to treat and may take anywhere from 12-15 treatments or more; whereas an acute condition like a cold may only take between two to three treatments. If you can, try to schedule your treatments close together, as the treatments build upon each other to increase the rate and longevity of relief.
Insurance coverage varies from provider to provider. Contact your insurance provider to learn what kind of care is covered. I will be happy to provide you with a bill to submit to your insurance provider.
Rates can vary depending on if it is an initial visit or a follow-up, acupuncture or herbs. Please don’t hesitate to contact me about your symptoms or condition so we can figure out what treatment is right for you.
Be sure to eat before you come in. Wear loose clothing such as shorts or sweat pants so that your arms and legs are accessible, since these areas are needled the most during acupuncture.
Your first visit will usually take about an hour an a half, but leave a two hour window in case it runs over.
Lastly, feel free to come with any questions you may have. I am here to help you or refer you to someone who can.
All you need to do is drink plenty of water and rest. Stay away from any strenuous exercise for up to six hours after treatment.
Write down any changes you experience after treatment.
