How many treatments do I need?
We cannot yet determine how many treatments you will need, because each treatment plan is personalized. An estimate can only be made after the first consultation. Most patients require a treatment plan of 10-12 acupuncture sessions.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture hardly hurts. Most patients describe a dull, slightly painful sensation when the needle is inserted.
Does acupuncture really work?
According to the WHO (World Health Organization) , acupuncture is effective for many health problems. In the last 20 years there has been a lot of research on acupuncture, more than 13,000 studies in 60 countries. From all these studies it can be concluded that acupuncture certainly works.
Is Acupuncture Safe?
Acupuncture is certainly safe. We use disinfected stainless steel acupuncture needles; these will be disinfected again before the treatment. Needles are only used once, and disposed immediately after each use.
