Copyrite  Acupuncture Northwest
Does Acupuncture work?  Yes Acupuncture and oriental medicine have been used throughout history by more people than all other health modalities combined.  In fact, it has been the main form of health care for most of the world for thousands of years. Does Acupuncture provide more than just temporary results?  Yes The results of acupuncture are long lasting due to the fact that it addresses the underlying cause of the disease, not just the symptoms. Can I feel the needles? Acupuncture needles are as thin as a hair and are inserted quickly to avoid the sensation of pain.  But, for those who are still uneasy, we have needless acupuncture available.  This is a low level laser that is used a lot on children and facial acupuncture. Are the needles disposable?  Yes All needles are single use, which means they are disposed of as medical waste after each use. How many treatments will I need? Usually one or two treatments per week are recommended.  However, the number of treatments needed varies widely according to condition.  Generally the more chronic the illness the more treatments are needed, and may require several weeks or longer.  Acute problems respond much faster.  Occasional treatments throughout the year may help to prevent problems from becoming chronic or severe. Is Acupuncture covered by insurance? More health insurance companies are covering acupuncture due to public demand. In Washington State it is the law that the insurance company must include acupuncture treatment as long as it is provided by a licensed acupuncturist.  Personal injury cases are usually covered.
