Frequently Asked Questions about Acupuncture

Many individuals hear the word needles and are hesitant; here are a few FAQ’s to help you know what to expect from your acupuncture treatment.

 Many ask, do the acupuncture needles hurt?
The needles are very thin and do not penetrate very deeply.  Most of the time you do not even feel the needle entering the skin, during the treat or when they are removed.  Instead, you simply lie restfully in a spa-like setting.

Will I bleed from the needles used during acupuncture treatment?
The needles are so thin, rarely will there be any blood and if it does happen it is usually a drop when the needle is removed.  But again, this is rare.

 What if I need to move during my acupuncture treatment?
Movement is OK during the treatment and a practitioner is always available if you become uncomfortable or need to get up.

 Is Acupuncture safe?
The needles used during an acupuncture treatment all new and never re-used and disposed of properly.  The acupuncture treatment is performed in a comfortable medical office.

Hopefully, some of your questions have been answered.  If you have any other questions about what to expect during your acupuncture treatment, don’t hesitate to contact one of our New Jersey Certified Acupuncturists before your treatment.
