Does acupuncture hurt?

We customize your acupuncture treatments to bring the quickest results possible with a minimum of discomfort. When an acupuncture point is stimulated, the result is called, "the arrival of Qi.” Initially there may be a slight sensation, but there should not be pain. Individual attention and care is our utmost priority.

Are the needles re-used?

At Balancing Point Acupuncture we use only the finest grade materials. All our needles are sterile, disposable, single use.

How long is a visit?

The first visit is typically One and a half hours in length, depending on your needs and the condition being treated. Subsequent visits are usually an hour, but may be as short as 30 minutes, depending on your condition. To learn more about appointments and appointment times click here.

Acute problems are resolved most quickly and may even be relieved on the first visit. Subsequent visits are made to strengthen the effect and improve long-term results.The more chronic the illness, the longer it may take to resolve, perhaps several weeks or months. It is important to note that the longer the problem has been established, the longer it may take for the body to come back to balance.
