Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of conditions. It works with the body’s resources and has very few side effects, making it safe for the vast majority of patients, regardless of concurrent health conditions. Acupuncture treatments can benefit everyone, including children, seniors and pregnant women.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, single-use needles into strategic points to initiate change in the body. Because acupuncture relies on the connections in your body, the points may not always be directly in the problem area. Therefore, your acupuncturist may also use a combination of needles and other modalities such as cupping, Gua sha (manual muscle work), electro-acupuncture or ear acupuncture.


As with all therapies, acupuncture often requires several treatments to resolve an issue. Each patient will require an individual timeline, but an average “course of treatment” is generally between 6-10 treatments, with improvements starting within the first few sessions. Women’s health complaints are often assessed over a minimum of three cycles. Chronic conditions will often require a longer treatment time, but usually, after an initial course of treatment, your acupuncturist can establish a maintenance plan.
