How many sessions do I need to see results?
Each person and each condition is different. Some issues take longer to resolve, while some issues respond more quickly. The greatest factor that will determine a beneficial result is the immune system, which allows our bodies to remain resilient in the face of change. On your initial visit, after intake and a discussion about your goals, a treatment strategy will be provided, and will include recommended treatment frequency, therapies, and self-care techniques.
Does Acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are very thin and rarely cause pain. During the treatment, as you begin to relax and your stress response decreases, you may feel other sensations such as warmth, coolness, loosening, clarity, or a slight tingling.
In the odd occurrence that you do feel pain or discomfort, please let your practitioner know. They can adjust your needle or use a different point entirely in order to ensure that you remain comfortable and at ease.
What if I can’t afford a private session?
