Frequently Asked Questions
Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture uses needles that are significantly smaller than any syringe that a doctor would normally use. The sensation has been said to be comparable to a bug bite or a pinch, but often most people do not feel anything at all. Certain points are very tender to needle, and we try to avoid these points unless they are absolutely necessary. If you are sensitive to the needles we will adjust your treatment accordingly so that we can help you achieve your health goals in alignment with your comfort.
How many treatments does it take?
The number of treatments that it takes to treat any given condition is based on a great number of factors. Some of these factors can include: the length of having said condition, age, dietary and lifestyle factors, willingness to perform self care at home, etc. It would also be safe to say that this medicine isn’t magic and no condition will be fully resolved after one treatment. However with that being said, many patients often leave the office with less pain than they started with and feeling more relaxed.
How long is each treatment?
At The Subtle Point, we offer a variety of services that can run from 5 minutes to as long as an hour. Initial appointments, however, are one hour long. During that appointment we will go over your health intake form, go over the estimated amount of treatments that will get you to your optimal health, go over the treatment methods that will be utilized, herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle advice, and more.
Do I need to disrobe for my treatment?
For the most part, no you don’t. I typically try and utilize points below the elbows and knees, sometimes around the belly, and sometimes on the back. Because of this I highly recommend that you come in wearing loose, comfortable clothing to allow easy access to these areas.
How can I schedule a treatment?
To schedule an appointment you can call, send us an email, or book online by clicking on the “Book Now” button in the upper right portion of the screen.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, check, and credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover).
Do you accept insurance?
At this time I am not accepting insurance, but I can give you an invoice/superbill to give to your insurance company for reimbursement.
