How much does Acupuncture hurt?

Usually, not much at all. It can sometimes feel like a small pinch or a dull tingle that goes away before you even noticed it. Most people become deeply relaxed and fall asleep once all the needles are in.

What's the difference between a visit to a typical acupuncture practice and a community acupuncture practice?


Most acupuncture treatments in the United States take place on a table in a room by oneself. This is not traditional in Asia, where acupuncture usually occurs in a community setting. We all know the value of 'power in numbers'. Would you prefer to eat in an empty restaurant, or one that is full of people and bustling?


How about an empty movie theater? Us neither! A healthy group setting creates a dynamic that can be used for all of our benefit in an acupuncture clinic. Receiving treatment in a community setting has other tangible benefits, as well: it's easier for friends and family members to come in for treatment together and many patients find it a relief to not be isolated during their treatment.


In addition, the community setting allows patients to decide how long their treatment will take, as the 'right' amount of time varies from person to person, visit to visit. This can take anywhere from twenty minutes to a couple of hours. You can stay as long as you feel comfortable doing so, or until we close for the day! When you are feeling as though you are ready to end your visit, or need to get our attention, just give us a wink, nod or smile, and we will remove your needles or be available otherwise.

Lastly, our clinic employs a sliding scale fee schedule to help make acupuncture available to the whole community.
