Acupuncture operates on the idea that a person's qi, or life force, runs through the body along certain meridians, and that specific points on the body correspond with these meridians. When these points are ‘activated' or stimulated by touch, specific complaints of chronic pain or illnesses can be alleviated.
Does it hurt?
Acupuncture needles are as thin as a single strand of hair, meaning that insertion should be barely noticeable. Some parts of the body like the hands and feet may be more sensitive due to the abundance of nerve and blood vessels.
How many treatments do I need?
Every person is different. Acute problems take less time than chronic issues. On average, a person only needs 3 sessions which are followed up by once a month tune-ups.
When will I start to notice a difference?
Immediately or about 24-48 hours. Some issues will take 2-3 treatments.
How long are the sessions?
Initial and follow up appointments are an hour long.
What is the cost?
We accept insurance - please call to verify. For out-of pocket, the cost is $75 per visit.
What forms do I need to complete before my treatment?
How do I cancel an appointment?
