Acupuncture Q & A
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture -- one of five pillars of traditional Chinese medicine -- has been around for more than 2,500 years. During acupuncture sessions, our one of our experienced providers will place thin needles into specific locations on the body to treat various conditions. Over the years, Chinese doctors have perfected and refined this therapy to provide patients with better results.

Is acupuncture safe?
All of our Acupuncturists are very experienced and dedicated to providing a completely safe treatment: We only uses sterile, disposable needles, to provides the utmost safety for our patients.
Is acupuncture painful for patients?
It’s nothing like a blood draw or shot because the needle is much smaller. The needles acupuncturists use are incredibly thin, so most people feel nothing when the acupuncturist inserts them.
How long do acupuncture treatment sessions last?
We make it a point to communicate how long each treatment session will last before the session begins, but they typically run for up to an hour.
How can patients prepare for acupuncture?
Patients should wear loose clothing, which will give our providers easy access to acupoints. Patients should also avoid eating large meals immediately before treatment so as to avoid discomfort. Also, patients should avoid stressful situations so they can come to the appointment as relaxed as possible.
