DO YOU USE CLEAN NEEDLES?
Yes. All our needles are are required by law to be disposable one-time-use sterilized needles. They were produced for medical treatment, sealed and storaged according to the same standards. When we use the needles, we break the seal for each individually packed needle to be used on one patient for one time only. Then the used needle are disposed in a bio-hazard container.
I know Acupuncture involves needles. Does it hurt?
Generally speaking, Acupuncture should not be painful. You may feel a dull ache, perhaps a feeling of electricity or tingling, a sensation of heat or cold, or it may just feel strange. It also depends on what kind of needles are being inserted. For certain needles, you will barely feel anything. And it also depends on individual sensitivity.
Will Acupuncture interfere with my medication?
The short answer is no. A word of caution though, you may want to consult your physician for extreme cases.
