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.
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.
At LOAM, we value affordable access to Acupuncture and Chinese medical services through our mobile Community Acupuncture program. These community gatherings are ideal for groups of 5-10 people, including small businesses, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions. As a part of the program, we utilize the well-known and respected NADA protocol in a community setting, which means others will be in the room with you. This protocol is an accessible approach, and has been used in a variety of settings from international relief efforts to rehabilitation centers.

We do not accept insurance at this time. However, I am happy to provide a coded receipt which details services and can be submitted to insurance companies for reimbursement. There is no fee for this service.
