Frequently Asked Questions
How does Acupuncture work?
The overly simplified version is: the human body is a system of chemical reactions and electrical impulses. Acupuncture runs off of the electrical system when we insert the metal needles. Since humans are made up mostly of water, we make great conductors of electricity!
What is the difference between Acupuncture & Dry Needling?
Dry needling is not acupuncture. The two techniques vary dramatically in theory and in training & education. Dry needling is the insertion of a needle into an area of pain. Acupuncture is based on a theory of channels and is used for the diagnosis and treatment of systemic and/or pathological conditions.
Do you accept insurance?
We can call to verify your coverage and check your benefits for you. However, we are considered out-of-network providers with most insurance companies. We always recommend that you verify your own benefits also to prevent misinformation.
