First, no, receiving acupuncture isn’t like getting injections or shots! Treatment can consist of traditional needle work or laser acupuncture. If needles are utilized, they are very thin (5 acupuncture needles can fit into the interior of an insulin needle) and are typically inserted just a few millimeters into the skin. Our patients relate our acupuncture techniques may, in worst case scenarios, feel similar to a mosquito bite. Most times the patient feels little to nothing during the course of treatment. For those who are really needle phobic, we have many other means to treat acupuncture points. The severity of the imbalance, the amount of time symptoms have been present, etc. predicates how fast and how many sessions one might need to regain better function and reduce symptoms.
Results can be amazing. We weekly see dramatic changes in pain, swelling, digestive functions, breathing, and mobility.
We offer free consultations to answer questions regarding your particular case and if acupuncture is what you need. Please call 317-247-1717 and schedule to get yourself back on the road to better health.
