WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR ACUPUNCTURE?
Our licensed acupuncturists meet with each patient prior to their first treatment to ensure they are a suitable candidate for acupuncture, but most men and women looking for a natural approach to overall wellness are candidates for acupuncture. Those who are not eligible for acupuncture include those with hemophilia or contagious skin diseases. We take special precautions when working with those on blood-thinning medication or tend to bruise easily.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Even though acupuncture has been around for centuries, it’s a new territory for many. Demystifying acupuncture and helping people understand that not only does it work, but it treats the whole person. Side effects are minimal but may include fatigue, slight bruising, tenderness at needle site, lightheadedness, temporary worsening of symptoms, and emotional release. It is best to consult with your acupuncturist on what you can expect from your personalized treatment plan.
