Q1: Is acupuncture painful?

Q2: Do western medical doctors approve of acupuncture?
A2: Yes. There are approximately 6,500 licensed acupuncturists in the U.S. In addition, the World Health Organization currently recognizes more than 40 medical problems which can be helped by acupuncture treatment. The FDA regulates acupuncture needles as medical devices.
Q3: How do I prepare myself before an acupuncture session?
A3: The best way to prepare is to eat a snack or a light meal before treatment so the you body has sufficient energy to work with. If possible it is best to wear loose clothing so that your arms and legs are accessible for treatment. After treatment we recommend you drink a glass of water to help stabilize your energy.
Q4: Can I receive acupuncture when I am pregnant?
A4: Acupuncture is safe during pregnancy and can help relieve many pregnancy and postpartum conditions.
