FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does acupuncture work?
By stimulating points that lie on meridians that flow throughout the body, the needles encourage proper flow of qi and blood. Acupuncture also has been shown to increase levels of endorphins (our feel good hormones) and consequently decrease pain hormones and regulate all hormones.
How many treatments do I need?
Each person will need a different treatment plan but generally 1-2 treatments per week for the first 4-6 weeks will begin a treatment plan. And then once per week, with attention to how the patient is progressing. The goal is to keep the patient at a stable state for as long as possible with "tune ups" once per month or seasonally.
