Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

1. What is Acupuncture? Does it work for my problem?

Acupuncture is one of the oldest, continually-practiced healing techniques in the world. Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and improve functioning. This is done by inserting fine gage needles, the size of a hair, painlessly at key points along the meridians to relieve pain and to correct disease and dysfunction. Acupuncture helps you to get drug-free, natural pain relief, and treats causes as well as symptoms. It is a part of a holistic approach to health, connecting body, mind and emotions.


We use acupuncture to specialize in the treatment of Quick Pain Relief ---headaches, migraines, frozen shoulder, lower back pain, sciatica, knee pain, arthritis, tendonitis, pinched nerves, fibromyalgia, neuralgia, and surgical pain; Dysfunction---allergies, menstrual issues, menopausal problems, infertility, digestive disorders, urinary problems, paralysis, post-stroke rehabilitation, and injuries; Emotional Issues ---Stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia; Addiction---smoking, alcohol, and other undesirable habits.

Over the past 3000 years, millions of people have been successfully treated with acupuncture. Today, acupuncture is practiced widely in Asia, Russia, and Europe, and is now being used more and more in America. Acupuncture is proven to remedy acute or chronic ailments, relieve pain, enhance recuperative powers, and strengthen the immune system.

2. What are the needles like? Do they hurt?

People experience acupuncture needling differently. Most patients feel only minimal pain as the needles are inserted; some feel no pain at all. Once the needles are in place, there is no pain felt.

Acupuncture needles are very thin and solid, and are made from stainless steel. The point is smooth (not hollow with cutting edges like a hypodermic needle), and insertion through the skin is not as painful as injections or blood sampling. The risk of bruising and skin irritation is less than when using a hollow needle. Since disposable acupuncture needles are used, they are FDA approved, individually packaged, and there is no risk of infection from the treatment.

3. How many treatments will I need? What can I expect after my treatments?

The number of treatments recommended is dependent  upon each patient's condition. On average, most people need 6-10 sessions and start to see some improvement between the 4th and 6th treatment.
