Does Acupuncture Hurt?
Acupuncture needles are very thin and smooth, so when they are inserted you feel only a slight sensation or nothing at all. Once the needles are in place, you may feel a sensation of heaviness, warmth or tingling at and around the site of the needle.
How safe are the needles?
Very safe. Our clinic uses only presterilized, disposable needles and Dr. Kimi has received extensive training and is licensed by the State of California.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you will need depends on your overall health, your body’s response to Acupuncture treatment, and the nature and duration of your illness or injury. Usually within 4 to 6 treatments Dr. Kimi will be able to tell you how much further treatment you will need.
Can I continue taking my regular medication while receiving Acupuncture?
Yes. Acupuncture treatment may be used along with other medical care to great advantage.
