Once a needle reaches its intended depth, you’re likely to feel a mild, dull ache or a slight tingling sensation. This may be a sign that the treatment is working and the acupuncture point is being activated. You may also feel a heavy or electric sensation. Feelings of warmth may arise at the acupuncture points.
The risks associated with acupuncture treatments are minimal. At HeavenlyWell, we use disposable, single-use needles that are now the standard of practice among Oriental Medicine practitioners to reduce the chance of infection and bloodborne pathogens.
Length of treatment varies between individual to individual, you may discuss the details of your treatment plan with your practitioner during the initial consultation.
Common side effects include soreness and minor bleeding or bruising where the needles were inserted.
For information regarding the fees associated with your acupuncture treatment please book a free 15 minutes consultation session, which is done over the phone or in person. The reason for this is acupuncture is covered by many major health insurances and we would need to verify your coverage if you carry a health insurance. During the initial free consultation we get to know you better and learn about the reason for your visit to be sure acupuncture is the right modality to address your concerns.
