Frequently Asked Questions

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture needles are hair-thin. At Lake View Acupuncture, a very gentle needling technique is practiced so that discomfort is minimal when the needle is inserted. Once the needle is in place, a dull, heavy or slightly achy sensation may be temporarily experienced indicating that the acupuncture is working to activate the body's natural healing ability.

Is acupuncture safe?

When practiced by a qualified and licensed acupuncturist, acupuncture is very safe. Only sterile, single use disposable needles are used, eliminating almost any chance of infection.

How should I prepare for a treatment?

Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes. Make sure you have had something to eat within a couple of hours of your treatment. Do not use alcohol and minimize your caffeine intake prior to your treatment. Plan to limit activity and keep well-hydrated after your treatment. Plan to spend about an hour and a half at your first treatment and about an hour at subsequent treatments. If possible, please arrive a few minutes early to complete the intial intake forms.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed varies with the individual and the condition being treated. An acute problem may resolve quickly with only a few treatments whereas a chronic condition may take several weeks of treatment.

How much does a treatment cost and does insurance cover acupuncture?

We do not presently accept insurance, but can provide you with a receipt that you can submit to your insurance company if acupuncture is included in your benefits. In keeping with our mission to make acupuncture accessible to as many people as possible, we try to keep our fees reasonable and affordable.
