Does it really work?
Does it hurt?

More and more people are starting to see the natural healing benefits of Acupuncture, however we still get many questions about this ancient therapy that we will answer today!

Does it actually work?
Yes, there is an increasing number of research that proves the natural therapies effectiveness and it is being used progressively in America in conjunction with Western medicine. Acupuncture has been proven to treat conditions ranging from depression to hypertension to induction of labor. The University of San Diego School of Medicine conducted case control studies that have a full list of conditions that Acupuncture can help with here.

However, it is important to keep in mind acupuncture should not be used as a cure all. Since acupuncture is completely natural with little to none side effects, it can be used in conjunction with any other treatment you are receiving or any current prescriptions or pain medications you’re taking. Acupuncture has actually helped our patient’s decrease their dosage of pain medications or stop their reliance all together.

Does it hurt?

Nope! Acupuncture needles are extremely thin. Some patients are so comfortable they fall asleep during their treatments! The most pain you may feel is a dull ache at the base of the needle when inserted or a slight tingling sensation. If it is your first time getting acupuncture, you may feel light soreness following your treatment. This is normal and usually subsides the day after.

It’s also extremely safe. It is an all-natural, drug free therapy, yielding no side effects and is virtually painless. Only sterile needles are used and are discarded after each use. However, it is important to use a licensed, trusted professional whom you trust. It is advised to research acupuncturists in your area and set up a meeting with your potential provider. As with any medical professional, it is important that you feel comfortable and safe in his/her presence!

How many treatments will I need?
It depends from patient to patient, condition to condition. Some patients with an acute condition see a drastic improvement after the first visit while others with more chronic conditions take a few weeks or months to feel improvement.  It is important to stay consistent with your treatments in order to see steady results. We usually recommend patients to come twice a week in the beginning and as your conditions start improving, decrease to once a week, to none at all. We like to compare it to exercise, the more consistent you are with treatments, the better your results will be.
Will my insurance cover for my treatment?

We accept all insurances as long as you have acupuncture benefits with your plan. Worker Compensation and Car Accident claims are also welcome. For more information on the policies we accept and how to check go here.
