THINGS TO KNOW
Frequently asked questions
DOES ACUPUNCTURE HURT?
Acupuncture needles are hair-thin and they are inserted gently and shallowly. While each person experiences acupuncture differently, most people feel only a minimal amount of sensation as the needles are inserted. Once the needles are in place, most of our patients tell us that they experience a feeling of relaxation and wellbeing that lasts for many hours after the treatment.
HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TO COME IN FOR ACUPUNCTURE BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
HOW DO I CANCEL OR RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?
CAN I SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION ONLY?
IS ACUPUNCTURE SAFE?
When a properly trained licensed acupuncturist performs your treatment, there are virtually no negative side-effects, and minimum risk.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT?
Please drink water and eat some protein within 2 hours.
HOW WILL I FEEL AFTER MY SESSION?
Everyone responds differently to acupuncture, some people may feel relaxed others may feel energized, and some may feel a little sore.
HOW LONG ARE NEEDLES RETAINED?
Acupuncture treatments require the needles be retained between 15 and 40 minutes. During that time some patients nap, listen to music or prefer a guided meditation. During your session other eastern modalities may be administered, for example, moxa/ cupping.
CAN I EXERCISE / WORK AFTER MY ACUPUNCTURE SESSION?
We suggest taking it easy for that day, as things are moving and shifting. You may return to work, but keep in mind you might feel a little sleepy after your treatment.
