Q: How does Acupuncture work?
A: Acupuncture improves blood flow and reduces inflammation that can cause pain, stiffness or discomfort. Treatment also turns off the body's "fight or flight" mode and turns on the "rest and recovery" switch, allowing your body to gather the resources to heal itself.
Q: What does it feel like?
A: The points themselves are typically painless. A lot of people feel sleepy or relaxed and choose to take a nap or have rest while they are here.
Q: How often should I come in?
A: Most conditions improve with 4-12 total treatments within a 2-6 week time frame. Results can be maintained with 1-2 “maintenance” visits per month.
Q: How long does my appointment last?
A: You should sit with points in for 30-45 minutes.
Q: Do I need an Appointment?
A: Appointments are required. Making appointments helps us keep track of whos coming in and when, and allows us to take better care of our folks in the treatment space, thank you for understanding.
Q: How much does it cost and do you take insurance?
A: Acupuncture is $75 for an initial visit and $55 for follow up visits. We do not take insurance but you are welcome to use your HSA/Flex spending account on our services.
