I’M SCARED OF NEEDLES! WILL ACUPUNCTURE HURT?

Everyone’s experience is different, but most people who receive acupuncture have no discomfort at all! Acupuncture needles are much thinner than the needles used when giving blood or getting a shot. Here at SOULSHINE, we utilize many different types and sizes of needles so that even the most sensitive patient can receive acupuncture treatment. With our gentle technique, most patients don’t even feel the needles at all! In addition, if you still can’t stand the thought of needles but are interested in the benefits of Chinese medicine, we have many other therapeutic modalities that don’t involve needles, like herbs, cupping, moxibustion, guasha, massage, mindful movement, meditation, breath work, and more!


HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?

Here at SOULSHINE, we don’t practice cookie-cutter medicine. We recognize that you are an individual with unique needs, and so that is how we approach your treatment plan. Depending on your condition and your individual constitution, you may see immediate improvement or you may need a series of treatments to see results. As a very general guideline, many people will see significant improvement within 6-8 visits, although more treatments may be necessary for serious and chronic illness. It is our goal at SOULSHINE to get you better as soon as possible- we won’t string you along! We will be honest and straightforward with you about what we are able to treat, and we will humbly refer you elsewhere if your needs fall outside our scope of knowledge or if we aren’t making the expected progress with your SOULSHINE treatments.
