Frequently Asked Questions About Acupuncture

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a therapeutic technique used in traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient’s skin at specific points on the body. The practice is used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body’s various systems. The needles stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue. This stimulation boosts the body’s natural painkillers and increases blood circulation, which can improve bodily functions and promote physical and emotional well-being.

Is acupuncture painful?

Most patients report feeling minimal pain as the needles are inserted. Some people feel a mild tingling or a dull ache at the base of the needle, which subsides after a few minutes. Acupuncture is generally considered a gentle and relatively pain-free treatment.

What conditions can acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture is used to treat numerous conditions including, but not limited to, chronic pain, arthritis, anxiety, depression, migraines, nausea, sinus congestion, insomnia, and infertility.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments varies from person to person. Some people experience dramatic relief in the first session. For complex or long-standing chronic conditions, one to two treatments per week for several months may be recommended. During your initial consultation, our practitioners will create a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Is acupuncture covered by insurance?

Many insurance plans now cover acupuncture. We recommend contacting your health insurance provider to find out if your treatment can be covered under your plan. Our office is also available to help with insurance verification.

Are there any side effects to acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a very safe method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and improve function. However, as with any treatment, there are occasional side effects, usually minor and self-correcting. Common side effects include soreness and minor bleeding or bruising where the needles were inserted.

How should I prepare for my acupuncture appointment?

Come as you are! It is best, however, to wear loose-fitting clothes to allow easy access to acupuncture points. We recommend that you eat something light an hour or two before your session, as this will help your body have enough energy to maximize the treatment’s potential.

Can I receive acupuncture if I am pregnant?

Yes, acupuncture can be an effective treatment during pregnancy to manage various symptoms, such as nausea and pain. Be sure to inform your acupuncturist that you are pregnant, as some specific acupuncture points should be avoided during pregnancy.
