Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are hair-thin and very sharp which makes the insertion of it virtually painless. You might feel a very mild sensation on points located on hands and feet.
Where would you place the needles?
There are acupuncture points all over the body. However, most points utilized in traditional Chinese acupuncture are on the extremities. Points on the abdomen and back are often used as well.
How long does the treatment last?
The initial visit takes about one and half hours. Follow-up treatments are about 50 minutes.
How many treatments would I need?
Just as antibiotic treatments and physical therapy, more than one session is often needed to improve or resolved your condition. In general, acute conditions and symptoms could take between four to eight treatments to achieve significant results, while chronic conditions may take months of treatments to resolve.
Do you accept health insurance?
We accept all insurance plans that cover acupuncture. We will gladly submit your claim to your insurance company for you, but you are ultimately responsible for your bill.
Flex-spend accounts often cover the cost of the treatment and herbal remedies. In the event that you need to submit an invoice for reimbursement, we will gladly prepare it for you.
