Frequently asked questions

What conditions does acupuncture help?

Chronic pain, allergies, anxiety, depression, back pain, sciatica, stress, fertility issues, gastrointestinal problems, gynecological issues, headaches, migraines, problems with sleep, immunity problems, breathing issues, muscle pain and weakness and much more.

Do I have to be ill to have acupuncture?

No. Acupuncture supports and restores health, vibrancy and vitality. Some folks come because something just doesn’t feel ‘right’ or ‘good’ and they don’t know why. Many come to support major life transitions, in times of stress or just to support their own personal growth.

What does acupuncture feel like?

Acupuncture elicits a sensation but it’s not a sensation of pain. It can feel heavy, tingly, achy or even warm. Acupuncture needles are solid and the width of a human hair. They are individually packaged, sterilized and used only on you. The number of needles used depends on the needs of each individual.


How often do I need to come?

Initially you will need to commit to a handful of weekly treatments and as you improve treatments are spaced out. The duration of a course of treatment depends on why you are coming, your condition, how long you have suffered with it and it’s severity.
