WHAT TO EXPECT WITH
1. QUICK & PAINLESS
The procedure is quick, you’re in and out of the office in about 30 minutes.
2. TREATMENT COURSE
The number of procedures you will need will vary based on your specific condition, the amount of time you've had it, etc.

The Acupuncture process is repeated 2-5 times a week until maximum improvement is seen. Then a maintenance regimen is often prescribed to prevent recurrence. Maintenance may be as little as 1-2 times per month.

COMMON QUESTIONS REGARDING ACUPUNCTURE
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR ACUPUNCTURE?
The medical literature shows acupuncture’s effect on nearly every biophysical system in the body. I’ve seen patients suffering from a wide variety of problems respond to acupuncture treatment when nothing else has worked. So, for most people, yes, acupuncture is something you should explore.
HOW MANY ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments needed differs from person to person. For complex or long-standing conditions, one or two treatments a week for several months may be recommended. For acute problems, usually fewer visits are required, and for health maintenance, we recommend monthly tune ups.
DOES ACUPUNCTURE HURT?
No. It’s very comfortable. Most people end up taking a nap during their treatment and leave feeling refreshed and relaxed.
IS ACUPUNCTURE COVERED BY INSURANCE?
No, we out of network for all insurance. The good news is, that you are the one in charge of what procedures you get, not an insurance company & acupuncture treatment is very affordable. We also accept HSA/FSA in our clinic.
