Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a system of medicine that is over 2,000 years old, using the insertion of needles into specific points in the body to balance the patient's Qi (the life force), and  thereby restore and maintain health by adjusting and altering the body's energy flow into healthier patterns, and acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions.

Q: What problems can be treated with acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an excellent choice for any health care need. Many health problems can be treated effectively through acupuncture alone, while others diseases may be best treated by combining acupuncture with other forms of therapy.

Q: Is acupuncture safe?
The modern standard of practice of acupuncture is to use pre-sterilized, one time use, and disposable needles. This significantly reduces the risk of exposure to blood-borne pathogens. If you are treated by a licensed professional , they have been trained to safely insert the needles, knowing how deep they may be inserted, and at what angle.

Q: Is acupuncture painful?
: It is common to hear people say, "I'm afraid of needles." This fear is usually due to experiences with larger, hollow needles that are used to draw blood, or inject some substance into the body. An acupuncture needle is very thin, and is usually inserted painlessly. The sensation the acupuncturist is looking for is a fullness, tingling, or electric sensation that is characteristic of the arrival of Qi to the needling site.
