FAQs

1.) Does acupuncture hurt?

We use very fine needles, many the width of a hair. You may feel a small pinch when first inserted, or a dull ache as "Da qi" is aquired. Others experience a feeling of a small electrical current or warmth, but it is not painful or unpleasant.


2.) How many treatments will it take?

Because each person and each disharmony is different there is no way of being sure.  If a disharmony is acute and not too severe it may take only one to three treatments. If a disharmony is chronic it may take up to 12 treatments. Although you may not see immediate improvements to your condition you will most likely experience some degree of relaxation after only one treatment, regardless of your malady.

3.) Do you accept insurance?

We are currently waiting to be approved by insurance. However, we do offer SuperBills which you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement. We also offer a sliding scale for those with financial hardship. Please contact us for more information.

4.) How long do treatments last?

The initial visit will last 1 1/2 hours. Follow up visits will last around 1 hour.
Herbal consultations are 1/2 hour.
