Frequently Asked Questions

Does It Hurt?
Unfortunately when many people think of
“needles” they viscerally recall experiences of
needle-headed syringes either injecting drugs or
withdrawing body fluid.  Fortunately, this has
absolutely nothing to do with acupuncture. In fact,
acupuncture needles have a completely different
design, are super thin and insert without harming
skin.  The only medicine they “contain” is the
ability to stimulate your body’s inherent healing
capacity.   Subsequently the placement of
acupuncture needles is typically painless and
actually relaxing.

Is It Only For Pain Relief?
While acupuncture is most well know for its ability
to relieve pain, it is also an ideal way to
compliment a patient’s overall health.   Many
people continue care even after their initial
complaints resolve.  Moreover, conditions not
associated with much pain, (and some not
helped by usual approaches) can also be effected
through Oriental Medicine. Digestive difficulty,
infertility, macular degeneration, asthma, irritability,
and even the common cold, are examples.

What Factors Determine Whether this Type of
Therapy Will Help?

There are 4 main factors that need to be
considered when determining the likelihood of
success in each case.

1-        How long you've had the problem.
2-        Your overall health.
3-        Your age.
4-        How severe the condition is.
