Are herbal medicines safe?COMF2018-05-02T19:53:51+00:00
Herbs are generally considered safe. Higher doses can be toxic just like pharmaceutical prescriptions. Follow your prescribed dosage and let your practitioner know if you are experiencing any problems as soon as possible. As with any new medication, allergic response is always a possibility.
What can I expect after my first appointment?COMF2018-05-18T21:24:15+00:00
Each individual may respond differently to treatment. Response could be immediate or delayed, depending on the nature of treatment administered. We ask that the patient be aware, especially in the initial 24 hours, of how they feel, both in a general sense and but also in specific symptoms that are being addressed. And always, if the patient has questions or concerns, we are a phone call away.
Does Acupuncture Hurt?COMF2018-05-02T18:24:54+00:00
Acupuncture should never be painful. However, it is not always sensationless. Patients sometimes experience itching or a dull intermittent ache at the insertion site. Some patients tend to be more sensitive than others, as do certain acupuncture points.

The number of visits you may need depends on the individual case. Variables such as severity and chronicity play a role, each person may respond differently to treatment. Typically we ask for 4-5 treatments to determine whether acupuncture is effective for you. If no progress has been made, we will reevaluate the individual and refer out if necessary.
