F.A.Q.


What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture, which has its origins dating back over 2,500 years ago, is a family of procedures involving the stimulation of anatomical locations on or in the skin by a variety of techniques using stainless steel needles to reduce pain and to regulate various internal processes. By stimulating various acupuncture points, the qi (life energy) of the body can be unblocked and brought into a state of balance. As a result, qi can move freely throughout the body, promoting pain-free health, well-being and vitality.

How can acupuncture help me?
Acupuncture can help you to reduce the harmful effects of stress, alleviate pain/inflammation, strengthen your immune system and much more by encouraging your body to naturally heal itself. It does this by re-establishing the balance of yin and yang in your body and eliminating stagnation by encouraging the healthy flow of qi and blood. On a medical level, science has proven that acupuncture has the ability to stimulate endorphins in your brain to help you relax and reduce pain. The ancient Chinese learned over two millenia ago that many illnesses and health-related conditions could be corrected or prevented naturally using acupuncture to unblock qi and promote circulation in the body.
Acupuncture is a proven, safe and drug-free alternative for healing and strengthening your mind, body and spirit. By combining ancient wisdom and medical expertise, acupuncture can treat the root cause of your condition, not just your symptoms, so that you can get the results you want!

 

Does acupuncture hurt?
When acupuncture is properly performed it should not be painful. One may feel a very brief sensation when a needle is inserted. In many cases, patients often report feeling relaxed. It is common to feel a brief tingling or dull aching-like sensation when a needle is placed in the correct position. In traditional Chinese medicine this is known as “da qi,’” i.e. the arrival of qi.

Who can have treatment?

People of any age or constitution can utilize acupuncture. Children and pregnant women can safely and effectively be treated as well. Previous or current illness, conditions and medication will be taken into account before treatment is provided.

How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments differs from person to person because each person’s health-related issue and cause is unique. Generally, chronic conditions usually require more treatments compared to acute conditions..
