Q: How long does an acupuncture session last?

A:The first session is usually just over an hour and then each session thereafter is 45 minutes to an hour long.

Q: What should I wear?

A:Loosely fitting clothes are the best – depending on what you are having acupuncture for, most people do not need to disrobe.

Q: Should I have something to eat before my treatment?

A:Yes. Acupuncture works with your energy, so having a snack before your treatment is important, particularly if your treatment is in the morning, make sure you have had a nutritious breakfast beforehand.

Q: What should I expect to feel after my treatment?

A:Most patients feel very relaxed and you may feel a little tired after the first treatment. Alcohol should be avoided for the rest of the day after acupuncture.

Q: How long will it take for me to feel better?

A:Everyone is individual and therefore acupuncture is different for everyone. However, usually patients begin feeling better within 2 – 3 treatments but a course of 10 is usually recommended. Acupuncture is cumulative – each treatment builds upon the last, so consistency is the key to success!

Q: What payment methods do you accept?

A:Cash, checks, credit cards and flexible spending debit cards are accepted.
