What Does Acupuncture Feel Like?

Many first-time patients are concerned that acupuncture needles will feel like hypodermic injections at the doctor’s office. They won't. Acupuncture uses hair-thin, flexible needles that you will hardly feel when I insert them. When I gently stimulate the needles they may produce a unique sensation that Oriental medicine calls de qi. Patients often describe de qi as a heavy, achy pressure, or spreading, traveling feeling. You may also feel an "electrical" sensation moving down the meridian pathways, though this is less common. Most patients find these acupuncture sensations deeply satisfying and leave the treatment feeling relaxed both mentally and physically. E-mail us

Acupuncture treatment creates deep relaxation
in both mind and body.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The benefits of acupuncture are cumulative, so more then one treatment is necessary. For acute conditions you can expect to have 3 to 5 treatments, but you will usually begin to feel relief after just the first few. Chronic conditions may take longer to respond, depending on the type, severity, and duration of the condition. Preventative treatments and treatments for general well-being may also be scheduled on an as-needed basis.

How Much Does A Session Cost?

Initial appointments are $99 and last an hour and a half and include a comprehensive patient history intake and full treatment.  Follow-up appointments are $69 and last an hour.  In addition we offer deals on multi treatment packages.  If you would like to talk to Annie to learn more about what acupuncture can do for you, we offer a complimentary 15 minute consultation.  Acupuncture sessions include any of the modalities of Chinese medicine that would be considered helpful for the patient's Chinese medical diagnosis including acupuncture, nutritional/lifestyle suggestions, cupping, gua sha, and electro-acupuncture.  Herbal formulas and nutritional supplements are not included in session pricing and vary depending on the prescribed formula and dosage recommendations.
