Does acupuncture hurt?

Generally, acupuncture is painless.  It is common for patients to feel a brief pinch followed by a dull, heavy, or radiating sensation.  

How many treatments will I need?

This will depend on the severity and duration of your condition.  Generally, acute conditions such as common colds or acute injuries can be addressed within 1-3 treatments.  Long-term and chronic conditions will require more attention.  A re-evaluation of your condition will be made after the 6th treatment to determine your progress and how best to move forward.  Typically, most patients see improvement within 6-8 treatments.    

 

Does insurance cover acupuncture treatments?

Certain insurance companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, and United Health Care provide coverage for acupuncture.  However, coverage varies from plan to plan.  If you would like us to verify your coverage, please contact us for more information.
