What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the specific points on the bodies surface.  These points are located along the body meridians (or channels) to conduct and regulate the Qi (vital energy) flow in the whole body.  Acupuncture focuses on correcting imbalances of energy in the body.

Is Acupuncture Painful?

Generally, patients feel no pain.  What patients experience varies depending on the individuals and the points of insertion. While most patients feel a minimal sensation as the needles are inserted, some feel none. People may experience soreness, numbness, heaviness, and tightness locally or spreading along the meridian when the needle is manipulated.

How Many Treatments Will Be Required?

Patients usually notice the benefits within the first 1-3 treatments. Acupuncture’s effectiveness typically builds upon each previous treatment. The number of treatments varies from one person to the next, depending on their particular condition. Acute problems may require only a few treatments, while more complex and chronic conditions may initially require one or two treatments a week, decreasing in frequency as conditions improve. Many choose to continue acupuncture on a less frequent basis for overall health, wellness, and relaxation. Others come back as needed when new health issues arise. We provide individualized treatment plans to suit your needs.

Are The Needles Clean And Safe?

Acupuncture needles are made from stainless steel and are very fine.  They are delivered in a factory sealed package and are sterilized before use. After use, the needles are disposed of into bio-hazard sharps containers.  We never reuse needles.
