  • General Questions

    • Is there any pain associated with acupuncture? Acupuncture needles are designed to enter the skin with the least resistance. Most clients are surprised to discover that treatments involve little or no discomfort, and are usually quite relaxing. You can expect to feel a light tingling, a feeling of heaviness, warmth, or numbness at the acupuncture site. 
    • How many visits will I need to start feeling better? Everyone is different!! Acute problems like a sore throat may be resolved in a single session. With chronic problems, most patients are accustomed to seeing results within 4 to 6 treatments. 
    • Are the needles safe? For the protection of the patient, only pre-sterilized and individually packaged disposable needles are used. 
    • Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my visit? It is a good idea to arrive for your treatment in loose, comfortable clothing. For better diagnostic information, it would be recommended that you DO NOT brush your tongue. Also, it is much better for you to have eaten prior to your acupuncture appointment.
