Frequently Asked Questions

Acupuncture is a form of medical treatment that uses medical grade stainless steel disposable needles, the size of a cat whisker (or smaller), that are inserted into specific areas of the body to stimulate the body’s healing ability.
Acupuncture needles are inserted into the body where nerves and blood vessels are densely packed, this increases circulation of blood flow and regulates the nervous-endocrine-immune systems. Acupuncture causes the release of chemical messengers, such as neurotransmitters and hormones, that affect the brain, spinal cord, organs, and muscles. This stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities, restores function, reduces pain and inflammation, and promotes physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
There are points all over the body, but most often the needles are placed in the head, abdomen or back, arms and legs.
You will be treated in a recliner, or on a massage table, and the needles will be left in for about 20 to 30 minutes while you relax or sleep. Each session typically lasts about 45 minutes.
After a session, people often feel relaxed. We advise you to go about your normal daily routine, but listen to your body and adjust your activity accordingly.
Acupuncture is medicine, not magic. On average 80 – 90% of people can expect a minimum of 30 – 40% improvement in their symptoms at the completion of their treatment plan. Some people heal more and faster, others heal less and slower. Unfortunately, we won’t know how you will respond until we treat you.
Acupuncture can be used by almost everyone at every age. There are very few negative side effects. The most common side effect is bleeding, bruising, and soreness at the site of the needle insertion.
