This clinic uses only the best quality, factory-sterilized, stainless steel needles which are single-use. In other words, needles are never reused or resterilized. This is in keeping with universal biological safety standards to avoid the spread of infection.
The needles are near hair-thin and very flexible. These qualities are important to minimize bleeding, decrease painful needling and avoid breakage. The lengths vary according to the area of the body where they are to be applied.
How long does a session take?
Usually a session will take 15 to 30 minutes. Some techniques employed by the acupuncturist may require only a short duration or may require a more prolonged session. Your acupuncturist will inform you of his intention to use prolonged methods so you can prepare your schedule ahead.
How many times do I need to come back for the treatment?
On average, the initial phase will usually require a minimum of 8 sessions though it may require more in some chronic or severe conditions. There will be a reevaluation of your case at the end of the initial phase so the frequency and duration of the maintenance phase can be determined.
