Regulating your hormones to relieve:

  • Hot flashes and discomfort from menopause

What does acupuncture feel like?
We use thinly gauged Japanese needles designed to be as small as your skin pores. Sometimes you may feel a pinch or a dull distending sensation. Patients are often surprised that a needle even went in because they didn't feel anything. One of the body's responses to acupuncture is to release endorphines, your body's natural pain killer. For this reason patients become very relaxed during and after a treatment.

How long is a course of treatment?
Because each patient is unique, a course of treatments can range from two to fifteen sessions. Most patients who come into my office start with four weekly sessions. At that point and we can begin to gauge how quickly your body is responding to the treatments and get a better idea of how many more will be needed.

How often do I need to come in?
This depends on the severity of the problem. Normally patients receive treatments on a weekly basis, sometimes twice weekly in acute cases. As the patient's health improves they can come in less frequently. We assess how treatments are going on a regular basis to track the patient's progress and adjust the timing accordingly.

Is there anything else that I need to know before coming in for my first visit?
Wear loose comfortable clothing. If you skipped a meal, try to have a snack before receiving treatment. Please print and fill out the new patient forms before coming in.
