Does it hurt?
During most treatments you don't feel anything at all, and generally the most discomfort you may feel is a quick twinge that goes away immediately. The most common side effect reported is occasional light bruising on an area that was treated.
Are the needles sterilized?
In Canada and in regulated Provinces like British Columbia, the needles have to be disposable (one time use). They come in a package that your Acupuncturist opens at the time of treatment. It is safe and clean.
How many needles are inserted during a typical treatment?
The amount depends on the condition, sex, age and vitality of the patient, but typically it ranges from 8 to 18 needles.
How many sessions does a patient require to see a difference?
Again this depends on the conditions (acute requires less sessions versus chronic which may need more), the vitality of the patient and also what the patient does with the Acupuncturist recommendation after treatment (ie; diet, lifestyle change, exercise...) will affect the number of sessions. But usually after 3 treatment, the patient should feel some improvement with the condition.
