FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

IS ACUPUNCTURE SAFE?

Yes, acupuncture is very safe when administered by a qualified practitioner. Very few negative side effects have been reported. 

DOES ACUPUNCTURE HURT?

Acupuncture rarely hurts because the needles that we use are very thin. Most patients barely notice the needles, are relaxed and often fall asleep during a session.

HOW LONG DOES EACH SESSION TAKE?

The first session will take 60-75 minutes. Follow up session usually take 20-45 minutes.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED BEFORE WE START TO SEE RESULTS?

As in all medicine, this depends on the condition we are treating. Generally, chronic conditions require 4-6 sessions 1-2 week apart before major improvement is noted. Improvement in acute conditions is usually noted sooner. After initial improvement, we start to space treatments out.
