Acupuncture Q&A

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture derives from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), a system that supports the notion that a type of life force, known as qi, flows through energy pathways (meridians) in your body.

Your acupuncturist inserts thin needles in your skin at points along meridians to achieve the proper flow of qi. This method stimulates nerves, muscles, and connective tissue and boosts your body's natural painkillers.

What can acupuncture treat?

The Healing Point treats several concerns. 

Physical issues

Acupuncture can improve headaches, lower back and neck pain, fibromyalgia, and osteoarthritis.

Mental health issues

Acupuncture can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can regulate neurotransmitters and hormone levels, promoting relaxation and emotional balance. It can aid with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder, and sleep quality. 

Women's health

Acupuncture can alleviate premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms. It can help with menstrual cycle irregularities, mood swings, and circulation.

Men's health 

Acupuncture can improve circulation, erectile dysfunction (ED), prostate issues, reproductive health, and pattern baldness.

Facial rejuvenation

Facial rejuvenation is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses thin needles to stimulate acupuncture points on the face. It is a natural and holistic approach to improving your skin’s health.

Sessions can promote circulation, collagen production, and muscle tone. It can also reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and puffiness, resulting in a more youthful and radiant complexion. 


Acupuncture may support fertility by regulating hormone levels, reducing stress, and improving blood flow to reproductive organs. It can also enhance the function of the ovaries and uterus, potentially increasing the chances of conception. 

Acupuncture may also help address underlying conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis.

Children's issues

Acupuncture can help children with ADHD, hyperactivity, anxiety, sleep disorders, lethargy, and digestive and immune system issues. Sessions can treat injuries and improve skin concerns.

What happens during an acupuncture appointment? 

Sessions can take up to 60 minutes, although some appointments may be shorter. 

For the treatment, you lie on a padded table, and your acupuncturist inserts needles at targeted spots across your body at various depths. You should experience little to no discomfort, and they may gently move the needles after placement.

The number of treatments you’d most benefit from depends on your condition and goals, but a plan of 6-8 sessions over several weeks is common.
