Herbal medicines help to heal by improving resistance to infection and balancing organ system functions. Herbs rarely cause negative side effects.

Number of Treatments

You may need as many as 2 or 3 treatments per week for acute conditions, or 1 or 2 visits per month for chronic conditions. This depends on the nature, severity and history of your condition. You may feel immediate relief, or the healing may take more time.

Acupuncture Needles

The needles used are thin, sterile, disposable stainless steel. The diameter of the needle is much smaller than the period at the end of this sentence. Sometimes, you donít even know the needle has been inserted. You may notice warmth, heaviness, tingling, achiness, or a mild electrical zing. There may be a brief sensation of pain, which will quickly subside. Typically, needles remain in place for 20 to 30 minutes, providing you time to relax, meditate or nap.
