FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
IS "DRY NEEDLING" THE SAME AS ACUPUNCTURE?Although dry-needling is an aspect of acupuncture care, not all acupuncture points are dry-needled. Dry needling refers to a technique used to release tight muscles and provokes a twitch response in the muscle so that it releases.
DOES IT HURT?Acupuncture is often described as a slight “pinch” when the needle is inserted. It is generally considered a tolerable sensation even by people afraid of needles. In fact the size to the needles are so small many people don’t event feel the needle get inserted. In fact, you can fit 20 acupuncture needles into the head of a typical needle used to draw blood!
HOW DOES IT WORK?For varying reasons the body doesn’t heal the way it should be able to. The body has channels of energy called Meridians. Acupuncture stimulates these channels and restores the body’s natural healing processes.
IS Acupuncture covered by insurance?Some insurance do pay for acupuncture treatment. However, in the event it does not we have very affordable programs to get people the care they need.
WHAT DOES ACUPUNCTURE TREAT?Acupuncture is frequently used to treat musculo-skeletal complaints such as neck pain, lower back pain, and headaches. It is also used to treat issues such as Infertility, IBS, acid reflux, skin conditions, and mental health concerns such as anxiety. Acupuncture has far reaching abilities on the body’s healing potential and is a safe alternative when you feel like you have run out of choices.
HOW MANY VISITS WILL I NEED?It is recommended to try at least 4 visits before deciding if acupuncture works for you. You may feel results after the first visit, but sometimes it takes longer. The results vary based on the person and condition being treated.
