Q: Is Acupuncture Safe?

Yes. Millions of Americans receive acupuncture every year. As required by law, all licensed acupuncturists use pre-sterilized, disposable, single-use needles to ensure your complete safety.

Q: Are you needles disposable?

Yes. We only use sterile, one-time use, disposable needles. We use the thinnest smallest needles possible. Some are thinner than a human eyelash; so thin that they are flexible. 

Q: Are you fully licensed, credentialed?

Yes. Licensed Acupuncturists are required to undergo extensive education, pass comprehensive national board examinations administered by the NCCAOM and be licensed by the state.  

Q: What does acupuncture feel like?

You may feel a light touch or nothing at all. After the needles are in, you may enjoy a warm, cozy, flow of energy throughout your body. Some people relax so much during the treatment that they take a short nap, which often feels like a very long rejuvenative sleep. I will walk you through every step so that each session is comfortable and there are no surprises. It's a very therapeutic experience. 

Q: How many treatments will I need?

Some people feel relief immediately after just one treatment. Some take a several sessions for the effects to cumulatively build momentum. 

We will create a unique treatment plan based on your needs.

Q: What happens during the first office visit?

You will complete a comprehensive intake form. I will ask about your health, lifestyle, family history, and wellness goals. I will take all this information into consideration when customizing a treatment for you. We can discuss your treatment plan. A treatment will be provided during the first visit. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing and soothing. Patients often fall asleep for a short time during the session.
