4. What can I expect during my first acupuncture session? During your initial appointment, your acupuncturist will conduct a thorough assessment of your health history and specific concerns. They will then create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. Acupuncture involves the gentle insertion of thin needles into specific acupuncture points on your body. Most patients experience minimal to no discomfort during the process, and many find it deeply relaxing.


5. How many sessions will I need? The number of sessions needed varies depending on your condition, its severity, and your response to treatment. Typically, a course of acupuncture involves multiple sessions, often spaced a week or two apart. Your acupuncturist will discuss your treatment plan and expected duration during your initial consultation.


6. Does acupuncture work for everyone? While acupuncture can be highly effective for many people, individual responses may vary. Factors such as the nature of your condition, your overall health, and adherence to the treatment plan can influence outcomes. Your acupuncturist will work closely with you to monitor progress and adjust your treatment as needed to achieve the best possible results.


7. Is acupuncture covered by insurance? Insurance coverage for acupuncture varies by provider and policy. We recommend contacting your insurance company to inquire about coverage. At VitalBalance Acupuncture and Healing, we can provide you with the necessary documentation for reimbursement if your policy covers acupuncture.
