Frequently asked questions

Does acupuncture hurt?


No, acupuncture should not hurt. After insertion you may feel a sensation of warmth, heaviness, or tingling, but there should be no pain. Most people are amazed by how relaxed they feel during and after the treatment. This can only occur if the treatment is comfortable and gentle.




Is acupuncture safe?


As long as it is performed by a licensed, competent practitioner, acupuncture is extremely safe. Acupuncturists are required to use sterile, disposable needles that are discarded after one use.




How many treatments will I need?


This depends on what you are coming in for and how long it has been going on. Every person gets an individualized treatment plan. Generally, acute conditions take less treatments than chronic conditions.
