Frequently Asked Questions

Needles used for acupuncture are designed to be as painless as possible however; you may feel a slight “pinch” or “zing” as the needle breaks the skin. As you relax and breath as discomfort will dissipate within seconds, once the needles are in place you should feel no discomfort, if you do ask your practitioner to adjust the needle insertion until you are totally comfortable. It helps to be well hydrated before your session.

We use sterile disposable needles only. They are sealed at the factory with an expiration date on the back. We only break the seal at the time of use, and all needles are immediately disposed of in sharps containers post insertion. Each needle is used only once in one location. ACCAOM Clean Needle Technique is utilized at all times. This provides the utmost safety for our patients.

Dry Salt is inhaled penetrating the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli. Once inhaled the salt begins to detoxify the lungs, killing bacteria and absorbing excess mucus. Non Inhaled Particles cover the skin.

Treatment times can vary with both Acupuncture and Salt Therapy, In general, acute issues resolve much faster than chronic issues. Ask your practitioner to estimate the number of treatments you may require at the time of your initial consultation. They will be happy to provide some general guidelines prior to your course of treatment based on your individual case.

According to Chinese Medicine acupuncture is a technique to Balance Qi or Life Force energy in the body to facilitate Homeostasis. However with more recent research we have found that. By Creating a Micro Trauma, with a needle at specific areas of the body, a “signal” is sent to the brain that then gives it information to increase the body’s ability to begin to heal a certain condition. The Brain then signals the body to act in a certain way, for example to send blood and nutrients to the area to reduce the inflammatory response. In this way Acupuncture increases the bodies healing ability and enhances its ability to function.
