Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I receive acupuncture?

The number of treatments required depends on yourself as an individual and the nature of the condition. Normally you might need Acupuncture once or twice a week at first although some conditions may need less frequent attention. At other times the sessions can be very successful and you may only need one or two treatments while for others the effects are more subtle and they may need treatment over several months.

Will it hurt?

Most clients don’t feel the insertion of the needle. Some people describe this as a little electrical shock and some feel it more like a cramping or tingling sensation.

If you are not keen on the use of needles, acupressure and  other techniques such as moxabustion, cupping, nutrition and herbal medicines, exercises, magnets, ear seeds, gusha and tuina can be applied during your treatment, following the acupuncture principles and still achieve successful results for your overall health and wellness.

Should I let my Doctor know that I am receiving acupuncture treatments?

If you are receiving treatment from your doctor it makes sense to let him or her know about your plans to have Acupuncture. The Acupuncture may enable you to reduce or even stop taking some forms of medication but your doctor should be consulted regarding any change of prescription.
