First Visit ~ Community Clinic

You might have some hesitancy around the idea of acupuncture and feel unsure of what to expect during your visit.

Below we will describe the process for your initial session and we will answer some of our most frequently asked questions.


 

Does it hurt?

Generally, acupuncture is not painful, but may produce some kind of sensation at the site of needling.

Worried about needles?

Acupuncture needles are extremely thin, smaller than a single piece of hair.

Where do you needle?

Typically treatments are performed on sites located on the arms and legs from elbows to fingers and from knees to toes. We rarely needle at the site of pain.

What about clothing?

Community Sessions treat only areas on the body that do not require the removal of any clothing, yet accesses full body health.
