FAQs

FAQs
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to achieve the desired effect. It is a medical procedure in which sterile, single-use, disposable needles that are as thin as a single strand of hair are inserted at one or more points on the human body to relieve pain and treat health problems. Occasionally either manual rotation or electrical stimulation generating a soft, painless current is applied to add additional stimulation.
How does it work?
Acupuncture works through your nervous system causing your body to heal itself or to restore balance in the way your body functions. One current view of acupuncture is that it stimulates the central nervous system to release chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These chemicals either change the experience of pain or release other chemicals, such as hormones, that influence the body’s self-regulating system. The biochemical changes may stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.
 
Is it effective?
Originating in China more than 3,500 years ago, acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world.

Is acupuncture painful?
People are unique and experience acupuncture differently. Insertion by a skilled acupuncture practitioner usually will be painless; in most cases needles are inserted just below the surface of the skin. Occasionally, some individuals may feel slight pain and discomfort that something comparable to a mosquito bite. More commonly though, there is heavy or warm sensation around the needle, accompanied by a sense of energy moving through the body or relaxation during the treatment.
How long does an acupuncture appointment take?
It varies, depending on the medical condition you are having treated and the severity of it. Acupuncture treatments are usually given following the examination on the same day. Patients will be asked to stay and relax for 40-60 minutes during the treatment.
