What can acupuncture treat?
The following is a list of some of the conditions that are treated and managed by Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine
(this is not an exhaustive list, to find out how acupuncture can benefit you give us a call!)
Do I need a "reason" to come in?
No. Many patients come in for regular treatments to maintain their overall health and wellness. The beauty of acupuncture is that it can be a wonderful preventative medicine.
What can I expect during my first appointment?
The first treatment will consist of an extensive health history background. Please feel free to bring medication lists, images or additional information that you think may be helpful to the practitioner. Chinese medicine relies heavily on tongue and pulse diagnosis, which will be taken during the session. We recommend wearing comfortable loose clothing.
After the intake you will receive a full treatment and recommendation on future treatments.
Does Acupuncture hurt?
No! Many patients don't feel anything at all- just a sense of calmness over the whole body. Some patients can feel a dullness, tingling and heaviness at the site of insertion. This lets us know that we’ve hit the point of Qi (energy) and that is it moving
Acupuncture needles come in many different sizes, lengths and gauges. For people who are needle-sensitive, we use smaller, thinner needles.
Are Acupuncture needle safe?
Yes! All of our needles are completely sterile, single use needles, they are individually packaged and disposed in a biohazard bin immediately after use.
Do you accept insurance?
At this time I am not able to accept insurance payments, however, it is my goal to accept insurance payments in the future. I am actively working on this goal and will update patients promptly when I am able to take insurance. In the meantime I am able to provide a super bill which you can submit directly to your insurance company to receive reimbursement. Thank you for your patience concerning this matter.
