Accupuncture F.A.Q.

What Treatments Can I Receive?

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Generally, No. Although, everyone experiences pain differently, so there may be some discomfort with the initial prick of the needle. The sensations will likely change depending on the treatment. Some sensations that have been shared are heat, itchiness, a dull ache, muscle twitching, electrical charge up or down a body part.

Do Acupuncture Needles Cause Bleeding?

Acupuncture needles are rounded at the end, not pointed. They are inserted with a quick twirling action the helps the needles slide between your cells. There cab occasionally be a small drop of blood right where the needle went in.

How Frequently Will I Need Acupuncture?

The amount of Acupuncture treatment will vary based on what we are treating and how you are responding to the treatment. Your Naturopathic Doctor will make a recommendation at your first treatment and your treatments can be scheduled as needed.
