FAQ

Does insurance cover the acupuncture treatment? 2018-06-22T14:06:11+00:00

Most insurance company covers the acupuncture treatment in an extended package. Please contact your insurance provider to determine how much is covered in a fiscal year or find it in our pricelist page.

Do you use fresh packs of needles for each treatment? 2018-06-22T14:01:21+00:00

Absolutely. The needles are sterile and for one-time use only.

How many treatments are necessary? 2018-06-22T14:04:33+00:00

It really depends on each individual. Most acute issues resolve in five to ten treatments, while more treatments are needed for chronic conditions. Benefits of acupuncture are cumulative.

In most cases, patients start to feel a difference after their third treatment; however, in many cases, we’ve seen results after their first treatment. It is very important to follow the treatment plan that is designed for you in order to see results.

Is acupuncture painful? 2018-06-22T14:03:47+00:00

Acupuncture is not painful. You may feel a minimal sensation when a very fine sterile needle passes through the skin. Some sensations that are totally common during acupuncture include feelings of heaviness, heat and pressure, though not to the extent of being uncomfortable. A vast majority of patients fall asleep during their treatments!
