Is acupuncture safe?
Yes, acupuncture is very safe. All needles are pre-sterilized and disposable. There are very few side-effects of treatment, other than possible bruising at the site of insertion, and that is quite rare.
What should I feel after the treatment?
Some patients may experience an increase in energy after the treatment due to the acupuncture stimulation. Others may experience a great sense of relaxation as inner tension is released and body and mind relax.
When do I feel better?
Response to acupuncture treatment varies. Some patients respond with a single treatment while others may need three or even more treatments before experiencing change. Usually the effect of treatment will be noticed within twenty-four hours, the time it takes for the body’s energies to make one complete circuit.
How many treatments will be required?
In the beginning of care, we generally recommend 2 treatments a week for 2 weeks. Then we re-evaluate. After your body starts regulating and gaining function itself, then your treatments will be gradually tapered so that there are longer intervals between treatments. Many patients choose to stay on a monthly or quarterly wellness program to keep their body in balance and reduce the effects of accumulated stress, wear-and tear, or the aging process.
