Based on your condition, we will refer to the World Health Organization’s recommendation of the standard number of visits. But my personal goal is to aim for improvements as soon as possible. Acute conditions respond quickly (1-3 visits) while long-term, chronic conditions that often reoccur generally take a series of treatments (~10 treatments) before significant results are experienced. So much comes into play (i.e., patient’s general health, recuperative powers, participation in the healing process) that each patient’s healing journey is truly unique and one of a kind.

Acupuncture and the world of Oriental Medicine is a comprehensive medical system treating all medical conditions. It has been this way for thousands of years. It is practiced in tandem with western allopathic medicine in Europe and throughout Asia, where it originated. Trauma injuries are best treated at the E.R., but the majority of chronic illnesses and maladies respond well to the treatment protocols in Oriental Medicine developed over centuries. The idea is to restore the body’s innate wisdom, healing intelligence, and natural recuperative powers in a gentle and non-invasive manner. If you are looking for a “quick fix” for your condition, save your time and money and go to the O.R. or your internist. If you are looking for natural solutions and insights into the root causes of why and how you are in the situation you’ve found yourself, why patterns seem to reoccur and repeat themselves, this may be the beginning of wellness accountability.

What is your fee schedule?

How many treatments will I need for my condition?

How do I know you can treat my condition?

Will I need to continue to come in?

Chinese people are of the understanding that after the age of fifty, the body requires regular checkups and maintenance visits, similar to the way you look after and maintain your car. For some individuals whose genetic predisposition or lifestyle results in medical intervention before this age, earlier visits would be recommended. Some people go for chiropractic, others, massage, and still others see the long-term benefits in receiving acupuncture and herbs to promote physical well-being on a regular basis. Some patients come in weekly, some every 2 to 3 weeks, others once a month, and still others come in on an as-needed basis. Consider what works best for you.  I can make recommendations but the final decision is really yours.

I have never had acupuncture before and it scares me. Will it hurt?

Based on how sensitive you consider yourself to be, acupuncture can be painless, gentle, sub-sensational, and relaxing. Based on where the needles are placed, patients have also spoken of feeling comfortably sedated, feeling a sensation of heaviness, pressure, even slight tingling in the area. You may also experience what’s akin to a fleeting ant bite; all feelings that fall within the realm of receiving an acupuncture treatment. Be assured very effort is made to make you as comfortable as possible, but do understand the dynamics of healing alchemy; we meet in the middle.

How safe are the needles?

Since I began clinical training is 1994, one-time use disposable sterile needles have been in use throughout the world. These needles are used once then disposed of in a biohazard waste container. The soft, flexible needles range in size from 32 to 38 gauge.
