Frequently Asked Questions
What does it feel like ?
Most people describe it as an initial pinch, after that it will feel full, heavy, achey or a dull sensation. Many people feel so relaxed once they are settled in that they fall asleep.
Is it safe ?
Completely. Needles are made of stainless steel, they are pre-sterilized and disposed of after each session.
How many treatments would I need ?
This depends on what you are coming in for and your health at the time. A general rule of thumb is if you’ve had the problem for a week will take a few treatments, months will take weeks of treatment and years will take months of treatment.
We divide your treatment plan into 3 phases.
Corrective Phase – Treatments are scheduled weekly (1-3 times per week depending on severity). The goal is to relieve symptoms and start the process of addressing the underlying cause.
Recovery Phase – Treatments are scheduled every two weeks. The goal is to maintain symptomatic relief while focusing on resolving underlying root causes and preventing future problems.
Maintenance Phase – Treatments are scheduled once a month or seasonally depending on the condition. The goal of this phase is to maintain progress and support overall health.
Does acupuncture have any side effects?
Acupuncture therapy is widely accepted because of the fact that it has no serious side effects. There is the risk of light bruising which is not very common.
Are the needles safe?
Yes. Needles are about the size of a hair follicle, they are able to pierce the skin but the main purpose is that the metal is used as a conduction for the nerve. Other tissues in the body have a protective layer that the needle is not strong enough to penetrate – which is one of the reasons why acupuncture is so safe.
What should I expect during a treatment?
Grounding. Once the needle is placed you will begin your restoration, each treatment will last for about 20-40 minutes. Most people realize this is their most precious time to just be.
