What to expect after an acupuncture treatment.

One may experience an immediate total or partial relief of their pain or other symptoms. This relief may last or some of the pain may return. In a few cases, the pain may seen even worse. This is called the rebound effect. However, fortunately, it is rare. By the next day, the pain can be expected to gradually reduce. Often, the most dramatic results are experienced in the first treatment. However, one should see further incremental improvement after each subsequent treatment. In a few cases, there may be no immediate relief, only to experience the pain diminish over the next couple of days.

It is our experience that acupuncture and herbal medicines promotes optimal health, boost energy and restore harmony to people experiencing physical imbalances from the everyday rigors of modern life.

Many acute conditions may only require a single treatment and some degenerative conditions may require scores of treatments

Acupuncture does not hurt.

An acupuncture needle is so fine and thin that is can fit inside of a needle used for vaccination. You may feel a slight pricking, numbing, heaviness, tingling, or a swelling or electric sensation in the area around the needle when it is insertions usually last on a moment before subsiding after insertion of the needle is finished. Before acupuncture treatment, tuina and cupping treatment increase beta-endorphins levels in the body to reduce sensitivity to pain and promote circulation. The increase circulation triggers the innate immune system, which promote immune factors such as phagocytes and natural killer cells to the topic areas and speed up recovery.

The needles are clean.

Certainly! The needles are clean because we use only disposable needles at the clinic. They are surgically sterilized by the manufacturer and will be used only once, so there is no chance of infection.
