By far the most common question, concern about the needles is natural given our experiences with hypodermic injection-type needles. Needles that put fluid into the body or take it out need to be thick and hollow. Acupuncture needles do not transfer any fluid, are solid, and as thin as a few hairs.
The sensation ranges from nothing at all……..yes, nothing, to a slight sting or ache that disappears after insertion. After the needles are in place, patients rest comfortably.
An optimal treatment plan will be suggested after your health evaluation and exam are completed. Your treatment plan is based upon the degree of imbalances diagnosed and the length of the time the symptoms have been in place.
Most patients report changes within 6-10 treatments. Allowing appropriate time for acupuncture to reach the root of your symptoms is important. Conditions that have been in place for longer periods may take longer to resolve.
The Center accepts BCBS insurance policies that include acupuncture benefits. Call to ask us how to get started. Many other insurance policies cover acupuncture treatment. If you have another insurance carrier, fees are collected at the time of service. You will receive a receipt to submit directly to your insurance company enabling reimbursement to be sent directly to you. All fees, including co-payments for patients with BCBS, are collected at the time of each visit.
The acupuncture meridian system runs through the body delivering energy to the organ systems. This flow can be interrupted by blockages or buildups. When the blocks are removed or the excess drained, healthy energy flow returns and the organ systems receive the nourishment they need to function optimally allowing the body to heal itself.
Even though Chinese and Western medicine are different, they complement each other. Combining the benefits of both, where appropriate, is recommended. Patients continue seeing their doctors and taking prescribed medications. Any changes are made with the approval of your physician.
