Frequently asked questions
Do the needles in acupuncture hurt?
No, the needles insert into the body so quickly that the pain receptors under the skin cannot preceive the sensation as painful. In some areas where this is less flesh, such as the hands and feet, a sensation may be felt similar to a mosquito bite without the itch. This sensation should subside quickly after the needle has been inserted.
How many treatments will you need?
Everyone responds to acupuncture treatments differently so, multiple factors are evaulated to help determine a likely amount of treatments per patient.
Do you reuse the needles?
No, we do not reuse the needles. Needles are disposed off after use in a biohazzard container.
How should I prepare for my treatment?
It is recommended to fill out your new patient paperwork prior to your appointment. You may print or fill the forms out right online. If you prefer to fill out your forms in person, you may. We would suggest arriving 15 minutes prior to your appointment to allow enough time.
