I've heard acupuncture is only placebo, does it really work?


Placebo effect is a strong component in the effectiveness of any medical treatment. Acupuncture is no exception, in fact the placebo effect associated with acupuncture is particularly strong! It is not the primary effect, however. Acupuncture's direct physiological effects have been observed in animal and human research. The animal research on acupunctue particulary demonstrates that it does not work by placebo alone. You do not have to be a "believer" to get results!




How long will it take for me to see results?


The duration of your treatment plan will depend on the type of problem you have and your overall state of health. Most patients start to feel better right away and look forward to their visits here, knowing they will get immediate relief. For some conditions though, it may take several visits before your start to see results. When we review your case, we'll let you know exactly what you can expect and give you a written treatment plan. As a general rule: the more acute the problem is, the fewer visits needed and the longer you've had the problem, the longer it will take to "reprogram" your body to obtain and maintain relief.




How much does it cost?


The total cost of your treatment will depend on your unique case and the number of visits your body needs. That number depends on the severity of your condition, your overall state of health, and your compliance with the acupuncturist's best recommendation for your case. We strive to offer best quality care at a reasonable rate. We believe our rates are comparable to similar quality services in the Triangle area. Staff will go over our fees, services, and recommendations at your initial consultation. To give some perspective: acupuncturists charge differing rates depending on the type and quality of service they provide, and the clinical setting in which those services are delivered: You'll find that fees billed for acupuncture visits at various clinics will range from $35 to over $250 per visit.




How does it work?


Acupuncture works by causing measurable physiological changes in nerve signaling, hormones and neurotransmitter chemicals in the brain, and by boosting the body's natural rest, relaxation, and repair response. It can also directly and painlessly release tight muscles and strengthen weak ones. It reduces inflammation and increases circulation.




Will my insurance pay for my treatment?


Many insurances now cover acupuncture treatment. In addition, HSA and most FSA cards can be used for acupuncture. Acupuncture is considered a medical expense for Tax Deduction purposes. We are in network with a few insurances, but for most of our patients we are out of network. These patients pay us for their visits, and we provide the paperwork needed for them to get reimbursement directly from their insurance company, if they are eligible. As a courtesy, we will check your insurance policy for acupuncture benefits, just bring your insurance card to your office visit.
