Who should get acupuncture? Acupuncture can be beneficial to almost every one, there are virtually no side effects and it helps improve your overall health. Whether you have something going on or would just like to relax acupuncture can be beneficial for you.
Does it hurt? The needles used for acupuncture are very thin and are not like your average needle like when you are getting a flu shot. When inserting a needle there could be a slight pricking sensation or none at all. Overall, most patients don’t feel the needle.
How many sessions will it take? This depends on person to person. Some conditions are chronic which may take a longer time to address and some are acute which may take only a few visits. The number of visits vary from person to person because everyone reacts differently to treatment.
So what are some benefits if I don’t really have any health issues? When you get acupuncture endorphin’s, serotonin, and dopamine are released into your body. These can cause deep relaxation and stress reduction helping your body function better.
Do you take insurance? We currently don’t’ process insurance. However, we can provide you with a itemized receipt called a superbill that you can turn into your insurance provider. This way your insurance will pay you back versus the provider.
