FAQ

Does Acupuncture Hurt?
 
No, acupuncture should not hurt. Most patients are quite surprised about how little it hurts. Sensations that are typically felt during needle insertion include a momentary prick, followed by a very mellow dull pressure. Many patients are amazed by how relaxed they feel during and after a treatment.

As long as a competent practitioner performs it, acupuncture is extremely safe. Acupuncturists are required to have 3 years of training and they use sterilized, one time use, needles.

Are Chinese Herbs safe to take? What about toxins and pesticides that may be in the herbs?
 
All Chinese herbs that are prescribed at our clinic have been tested for toxins, heavy metals and pesticides. They are high quality herbs and safe for drinking.
 
How Many Acupuncture Treatments Will I Need?
 
This is unique to the individual. For the best results I recommend that patients come in for 8-12 treatments, twice a week for three weeks and 1 time per week for 6 weeks. This frequency helps to solidify the effects of acupuncture for every patient.
 
 

"It's not every day that you come across a healer that truly embodies the qualities that I always envisioned a healer to have, especially in our current world where healthcare has become more about money and less about patient care.

Ben is someone who I believe is approaching his patients from his heart because he interacts with me as an equal, not as a person with a certain disease.

I have seen Ben for 4 months now, and acupuncture (with Chinese herbs) has become a regular routine for my health. "
