Will insurance cover a treatment?

Acupuncture may or may not be covered by your insurance provider.

Visit our section on pricing and insurance.

Does acupuncture hurt?

No. Needles used in acupuncture are very thin, 8-10 times thinner than hypodermic needles used for injections. Because of this, they are barely felt when inserted.

Is acupuncture safe?

Yes. All the needles we use are individually packaged, made from sterile stainless steel, and are disposed of after one use.

Are there any side effects?

One of the advantages of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)) is the absence of serious side effects. Risk of infection is extremely low and because the needles are so fine, they rarely cause bleeding.

What symptoms do you treat?

We employ acupuncture, in combination with other therapies, to treat a variety of symptoms and conditions.

How long does it take for a treatment?

Your first visit will include a health history intake and examination as well as a treatment.  Because of this, first visits can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours.

Return visits will also vary in length depending on individual needs but will generally take between 30 min to 1 hour.

How many treatments will I need?

Treatment plans are unique to every individual. The length of treatment depends upon many factors including the nature and severity as well as duration of the problem.

The primary focus of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is to correct the underlying causes of imbalance and thus produce lasting relief. While some conditions may respond immediately, others may take more time.

What should I expect during a treatment?

Most people become deeply relaxed during acupuncture treatments. Patients usually report a general state of well-being while receiving acupuncture.

Some patients come in before important golf games because they’ve discovered that they always perform best after their treatments. Other patients schedule their acupuncture sessions at the end of the day when they know they can go home afterward and enjoy their peaceful state.
