Is Acupuncture painful?
Acupuncture needles are very fine like a hair. Sometimes it feels like a mosquito bite, sometimes you feel nothing when the needle is inserted. It is very gentle. It is nothing like getting a shot or a tattoo.
Is one Acupuncture session enough?
Usually not. Acupuncture is a therapy just like massage, chiropractic, or physical therapy or even counseling. While you may feel better with one treatment, it takes time for the body to make changes. Repeat sessions are cummulative and several sessions will give you better results. Everyone is different in the amount of sessions they need to feel better, but I recommend trying 5 sessions to see the first wave of progress.
Can Acupunture work for chronic pain?
Yes it can! It is very good for chronic pain. In this case you will not see full results from one session but you will need several.
Can Acupuncture work for stress and anxiety?
Yes it can! By nature acupuncture is deeply relaxing for the body.
