Top 2 Questions About Acupuncture

From the desk of Jessica L. Molleur, Lic.Ac. DNBAO and Erin Walker, Lic. Ac... We speak with many people about acupuncture; what it is, what it isn't. Many people have the same questions. We've picked the two most popular questions and answered them for all to see!

Q: Does acupuncture hurt?

A: Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, hair-like, sterilized, disposable needles.Most clients do not experience any pain during the insertion of the needle and typically find the overall affects of acupuncture to be very relaxing. However, acupuncture is not a sensation-less process. The acupuncturist will take the time to explain what you should expect to feel during treatment. Additionally, they have experience in working with a wide variety of clientele including children with different sensitivity levels. If you are concerned about what acupuncture may feel like, let the acupuncturist know during your initial health history and they will walk you through the process.

Q: Is acupuncture effective for _______________________?

A: Because acupuncture is a homeostatic medicine and helps to improve the physiology of the entire body, there are very few conditions in which acupuncture is not effective. However, we recommend that if you have any specific questions about your health history that you speak with the acupuncturist directly or schedule a 30 minute consult to do so at OMBE. You can easily book online or call 617.447.2222.
