  • How many treatments will I need?
    That will usually depend on the degree of your symptoms and the nature of the problem. It could rage from 2 treatments a week for 2 weeks or 6 weeks. Every treatment is cumulative and compiles on the previous treatment. In my experience, the ones who show up for their appointments, take their herbs, and truly want to get better, will yield better results. On average most people tend to notice a change after the 2nd and 3rd treatment. Remember, healing is a journey. Unfortunately there is no pill that makes it all better overnight. It takes time, patience, and a strong will to see results.
  • What to expect on your first treatment?
    1) Make sure to eat breakfast before morning treatments. 2) Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing or bring a change of clothes. Most points are within reach without the removal of clothing. However, in order to properly access certain points on the body, we may ask you to change so that we can adequately reach those areas if the condition requires. 3) Stay hydrated and avoid caffeine, alcohol and other stimulants. (but if you have to have that morning cup of coffee, we get it) 4) If possible, bring any bloodwork, labs and list of medications from your primary doctor.
  • What Is Acupuncture? And Does It Hurt?
  • What Does It Feel Like?
    Depending on the location, you might feel a slight pressure but most people say "that was it?!" or "I didn't even feel it." It is, however, expected to feel a slight tingle, deep, heavy or buzzing sensation with certain points, but it should NEVER feel sharp, burning or painful. Remember, acupuncture is and should be a relaxing experience with a multitude of health benefits. If you have any worries or fears, the doc will work with you to make you feel the most comfortable and safe.
  • Is Acupuncture Safe?
    Acupuncture is one of the safest medical procedures available with the least amount of risk. All licensed acupuncturist are required by law to use single-use sterilized needles. Dr. Evan has the highest level of training with 4000 hours of didactic classes and over 400 supervised clinical treatment during his 4 year program. He is nationally Clean Needle Technique(CNT) certified with the CCAHM, making patient safety the number 1 priority.
  • What is the difference between Acupuncture & Dry needling?
    They are almost the same. Similar needles are used but the person handling the needle is different. Acupuncture is performed by a professional acupuncturist who is expertly trained in Chinese Medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine framework dates back 3000 years and focuses strongly on differentiating and diagnosing. This complex method of healing works intimately with the body's energy by means of unblocking stagnation so that the body can return to homeostasis. This is why acupuncture is so great at treating mainly everything from pain, anxiety, and common colds to infertility, sleep issues, and gastro-intestinal disorders. Dry needling on the other hand is performed by a licensed physical therapist or chiropractor. They use the same needles as acupuncturists, but without the 3000 year old framework. With a knowledgable grasp on anatomy, they insert needles into myofacial trigger points to help alleviate pain and reduce inflammation. Both can be useful, but make sure to do your research.
