Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Does it hurt?
The acupuncture pins are extremely thin, and they don't cause pain because they are razor sharp.
2. Will I have to keep coming forever?
The vast majority of patients don't need long-term maintenance. Once their condition is resolved, it stays that way.
3.Will you tell me I have to take 25 vitamin pills a day?
We always make sure our treatment plans are concise and focused on your problem. No "shotgun" approach here.
4. Will I have to spend a lot of time coming in for treatments?
Most of our patients are able to get great results with once-weekly visits. We can discuss this in more detail at your complimentary consultation.
5. How do I know it's safe?
Acupuncture has been practiced safely for over 3,000 years, and in the hands of an experienced practitioner is virtually risk-free.
6. Is this going to require a big time commitment?
Actually all it takes is some very simple daily routines that take less than a few minutes a day along with once a week acupuncture visits to my office for several weeks.
7. Am I going to have to give up all my favorite foods forever?
The vast majority of our patients are able to eat foods they enjoy again once their healing process is complete.
8. Is natural medicine REALLY powerful enough to cure my condition?
Natural medicine actually helps your body make more of its own medicine, which is more powerful and potent than any man made medicine.
9. Will I have to keep doing treatment with you forever?
Most patients experience a complete solution to their problem. After that, many choose to come in for regular maintenance visits. But our goal is to get you to where you no longer need treatment and will be so happy with your results that you'll send us all your family and friends.
10. How long does it take to see results?
People often feel a shift after the very first treatment. Acupuncture is a very powerful way to stimulate endorphin release, which is the most powerful relaxing substance the body makes.
11. Are there side-effects?
Generally, there are no side-effects, other than occasional minor bruising. There are, however, many positive side-effects including increased relaxation, better sleep, and a more positive attitude and outlook.
12. Will I bleed?
The acupuncture pins do not cause any bleeding whatsoever. Occasionally a drop of blood will appear at the insertion site, upon removal of the needles, and this is easily cleaned with a simple cotton swab.
13. Is there any risk of infection?
As per federal regulations, all our needles are sterile, single use, and disposable. There is no risk of getting an infection from the needles. If you have an immune or other condition we should know about, we'll make sure to cover that with you before treatment.
