Acupuncture, a completely safe and natural medicine, is a form of stimulation therapy, which entices the body into correcting itself. Acupuncture is the oldest continuously practiced form of medicine in the world, with a history spanning 2,500 years and recorded in over 30,000 books. In essence, it is the largest, longest running clinical trial in world history.
Does acupuncture hurt?
The needles used in acupuncture are extremely thin, causing minimal to no pain or discomfort.
What will my first appointment be like?
At your first visit, you will sit down with the acupuncturist to discuss what your symptoms or condition. Then, you will be asked to lie down on a massage-style table, and the acupuncturist will then begin treatment, inserting hair-thin, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points in your body. These needles will remain in place for twenty to thirty minutes, after which most people feel very calm and relaxed.
Is acupuncture safe?
Yes, it is very safe. Our practitioners are trained, licensed and certified professionals. Recent studies showed serious side effects in less than 1.1 patients out of 10,000. Because acupuncture is natural medicine, side effects are minimal, and the benefits are significant.
How soon will I see results?
Many people experience immediate relief, while others may need additional treatments before they begin to see results. Every person responds differently to acupuncture, and each ailment takes a different amount of time to treat.
