Pain FAQ

Who is acupuncture for?
Anyone who has an injury or pain from illness, regardless of how long the injury or illness initially occurred.
Is it safe?
Yes. Acupuncture is a 3,000 year old form of medicine that has been used by more than 8 million Americans. The pins we use are sterile, single-use, solid and about the thickness of a human hair.
Does is hurt?
If it does, it’s not much. More commonly, you don’t feel it at all and some people even fall asleep when all the pins have been placed.
How many treatments will it take?

The number of treatments that is required for your pain management varies based on the type of injury or illness, the length of time with the condition, your overall health, and each person’s rate of response to acupuncture.

Just like physical therapy or chemotherapy, acupuncture needs to be performed over multiple visits. It takes time, and usually after 8-10 treatments you will know if it is working for you. Our goal is always not just to treat your symptoms but also heal and correct your pain, disease and pathology in the shortest time possible. Our clinical experience of 80,000 acupuncture treatments has shown us that most patients start to experience relief in 7-9 treatments. View our pain management plans for more details.

So the sooner you call us the sooner we can help you live a PAINFREE and high quality life.

When will I see results?

It depends. Some experience immediate pain relief while others with chronic pain conditions take more time. Again, 8-10 treatments is a good starting point. View our pain management plans for more details.

Do you do more than just acupuncture?

We have many other alternative pain management techniques that will help you reach your health goals that include herbs, microcurrent, cupping, cold laser therapies and more. You can read more about those here.
