FAQ

How old is Chinese Medicine?

Acupuncture originated in China over 3,000 years ago. It is part of the holistic healing system of healing known as Traditional Chinese Medicine.

How does it work?

Acupuncture works by bringing balance to the body, thus allowing healing to take place. The classical Chinese explanation is that energy (Qi) flows in channels/meridians throughout the body. If there is disruption in this flow, illness/fatigue/pain will result. Acupuncture restores harmony to the body natural healing system. Acupuncture is performed by inserting very thin needles into specific points where the Qi is both concentrated and accessible, thus providing a stimulus to encourage healing.

What are the needles like?

The needles used are ultra-thin and made of stainless steel; FDA-approved, that are designed for single-use only. The needles have been sterilized by the manufacturer prior to packaging and used only once, then properly disposed – I never ever reuse needles.

Does it hurt?

Many patients report that they do not feel the needle insertion or some may feel a sensation similar to a little pinch.

Do I have to believe in Acupuncture for it to work?

No, the healing reaction from acupuncture is physically generated, but I have found the patients that have a comfort and understanding of acupuncture do tend to have better results.

How quickly can I expect to feel better?

The correct answer to this question is “it depends”. Your relief may be immediate, delayed for a few hours or even develop after one to three days. The relief may last for a few hours on the first visit and then last longer with each successive treatment. Or, relief may last from the first treatment until your next visit. It is important to recognize that we are all individuals with different conditions, ailments and concerns; individual response to treatment varies.

How often should I be treated?

Each patient, condition and their response to acupuncture is unique. The number and frequency of treatments will vary on a case by case basis. Feel free to email me to discuss your condition and I can give you an idea of what I feel would be an effective treatment course for you.

Does acupuncture always help?

No, but it usually does. Every condition and treatment plan is different – sometimes it takes 7-8 treatments for acupuncture to have a healing impact.

What should I wear for the treatment?

Wear loose, comfortable clothing that can be rolled up to your elbows or knees.

Does insurance cover acupuncture?

I do accept some insurance plans including No-Fault and Workmen’s Compensation. Please check with your Insurance Company Provider for their rules about acupuncture coverage details, such as number of visits allowed, diagnoses covered, and co-pay amounts.

I am a licensed Board Certified Chinese Herbalist and use herbs regularly with patients; in some cases herbs will be necessary to see sustained positive benefits. The herbs are ingested as a 5:1 extract powers or can be taken in pre-formulated “patent formula” pill form. Each herbal regimen is personalized to a client’s condition and often modifications to the herbs are done as treatment continues, as the body starts to shift towards being healthier and balanced, the herbs are adapted to meet the changing needs of the body.

Chinese herbal formulas tend to be much gentler than western medicines.
