Frequently Asked Questions
How long will I require treatment?
For reproductive issues, treatment once a week for at least three months is usually the minimum time needed for normalizing hormonal and reproductive systems. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, and because of the physiology of follicle development, follicles require treatment for at least three months before egg release to begin to notice changes on the menstrual cycle and egg quality. Depending on the severity of the condition, some patients may require treatment for longer periods of time.
For general health conditions, treatment depends on duration and severity of the illness. Usually, weekly treatments are recommended.
Does it hurt?
Acupuncture needles are very fine and not hollow (like injection needles) but solid and they slide through the tissue easily. You rarely even feel a pinprick. After the insertion of needles, patients usually enter into state of deep relaxation and very often fall asleep. Women can feel more sensitive to treatments during ovulation or menstruation.
Are the needles sterile?
Yes, it is standard practice in the U.S. to use sterile disposable needles.
What should I do before and after acupuncture treatment?
Before acupuncture treatment make sure you have eaten, but not too much, too recently. It is best not to have your stomach too empty or too full. Also, refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages before or after treatment.
For two to three hours after acupuncture treatment try to:
Avoid stressful situations
Keep yourself a comfortable temperature
Stay out of drafts and wind
Drink warm temperature non-caffeinated drinks if desired
Do not expose yourself to bathing, showering or swimming
Do not get too cold or too hot
Do not excercise vigorously
Do not have sexual intercourse
Why are these necessary?
In order for your body to adjust to the changes effected by treatment, a calm and consistent body state is needed. Staying as relaxed and comfortable as possible will best allow this adjustment to occur.
