SAFETY

I am NYS licensed and board certified acupuncturist with over 10 years of experience. Acupuncture is a natural and painless medicine. I use sterile, single-use, stainless steel needles that are hair-thin. The experience of being needled during an acupuncture treatment cannot be compared to having an injection. Acupuncture needles are designed differently to not harm the skin. Needle insertion on the skin is very gentle that you often cannot even feel it.

How many Acupuncture sessions do I need?

People respond to treatment differently. Acute Conditions generally will take a few treatments to resolve.  Sometimes a client’s chief complaint may be resolved in just a couple of sessions. In chronic conditions resolution is a process that takes longer time and commitment to unravel and fully resolve. Chronic conditions typically benefit from more frequent and regular sessions. Optimal and sustainable results tend to occur with 2 - 3 weekly treatments over the course of 2-3 months. When you experience improvements that feel sustainable, you can decrease the treatments to 1 - 2 per week, and eventually taper off.  Because each treatment builds on the last, I expect you to feel slowly yet progressively better with each treatment. After condition stabilizes or symptoms do not reappear one treatment every one to two weeks will be sufficient to consolidate the progress.
