Does it hurt?
The insertion of the acupuncture needle is often painless, however some patients report feeling a slight poke during insertion. After the needles are in you may experience and achy sensation, tingling feeling and/or a feeling of warmth At Full Circle Wellness Center, your acupuncturist will use a gentle Japanese style treatment for patient comfort. Rachael will typically use a Japanese style of acupuncture, however for sports injured patients more intense trigger point therapy needling is most effective. This is determined on a case by case basis.
How soon will I get results?
Hopefully after your first visit you have have some relief from your symptoms, however it can take up to 3 visits to get results. Depending on how long you have had an issue will determine how often and how long you will need to have satisfactory results. A good rule of thumb is for every year you have had a problem, it will take 1 month of regular acupuncture to obtain long lasting relief.
