Here are some frequently asked questions you might have about acupuncture:

Does acupuncture hurt?

No! Some people might be a bit timid at the thought of giant needles but when it comes to acupuncture we use tiny little pins that are the width of just 2 strands of your hair. Most people find it is really relaxing. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked into the room and found a patient snoring during a relaxing nap.

Are the needles sterile?

Yes they come in a one time use sealed package and all needles are disposed of in a Sharps container which is picked up by a medical waste disposal company.

How often do I need to come for treatment?

It depends on your condition, if you’ve had a problem for a long time, expect to come once or twice a week for a few weeks until we can get things under control.

Do I have to come for the rest of my life to keep feeling good?

No, of course not… but a lot of people do because they realize that they just feel so good when they come for regular tune ups.

I’ve had surgery, can I still come for acupuncture?

Yes! Acupuncture is used post operatively everyday across the world. It actually helps you to heal faster. Studies show acupuncture can speed up healing by 5 times.

Is acupuncture safe?

When acupuncture is performed by a licensed acupuncturist it is among the safest treatment modalities available.

How long did you go to school?

I have a Doctorate in Acupuncture, so I had to do 4 years of undergraduate school and another 4 years in Acupuncture school. As an acupuncturist we are trained in both western medical sciences like anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology but also have extensive training in acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition.

Is acupuncture good for pain?

Acupuncture is one of the best treatments available for all kinds of pain. Studies show it is more effective and safer than taking painkillers and the effects of acupuncture actually last.

Is acupuncture good for fertility?

Yes! There are quite a few studies that show how effective acupuncture is for fertility. In most big cities, every reproductive clinic will actually refer out to acupuncture if you are undergoing IVF/IUI. Acupuncture has been shown to significantly increase your chances of getting pregnant.

Where are you going to put the needles?

It depends on your specific problem. They always go into muscles to stimulate your nervous system. I have extensive training in neuro-anatomy and neuro-acupuncture and am one of only a few doctors in the entire United States to specialize in this incredibly effective form of acupuncture.

Is there any scientific evidence for acupuncture?

  • More than I could list here. At the time of writing this (as of November 2017) there are over 26,814 scientific articles on acupuncture on pubmed.
    I’m going to put a video of one of my colleagues who is great at explaining acupuncture research:
