Acupuncture Herbal Medicine Enzyme Nutrition Probiotics FAQ's


  •  Is Acupuncture painful?

No, most people do not feel any pain when the fine needle is inserted.  Some patients may feel a very slight sensation.  Acupuncture makes people get relaxed and fall asleep after a few minutes.  Patients may have some sensations such as numbness, warmth and pressure which are different from pain.  Because acupuncture needles are very fine and thin (about the side of a woman's hair).  The needles are solid, made of stainless steel and nothing is injected through them.  Dr. Woo has a unique painless insertion technique to place a needle with little or no sensation.

  •  Are the needles safe and clean?

It is safe and clean.  Our clinic applies only pre-sterilized, disposable needles to ensure the safety and hygiene of our patients.

  •  How many treatments will I need?

It depends on the patient's condition, but one series of treatments is made up of ten visits.  Although some patients may need only 4 to 5 visits and others may need 2 to 3 series of treatments.  To obtain the best results from acupuncture, we recommend three consecutive visits followed by two or three times a week.

  •  Do you accept insurance?

Today most insurance covers acupuncture benefits, but it depends on your health care provider and what type of health insurance plan you are enrolled in.  Our office also accepts worker's compensation

  •  Do you use Herbs and Nutrition?

Yes, we do.  Acupuncture is just a part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine.  The herbal medicine represents a large part of the service we provide.  In addition to hundreds of beneficial Chinese herbs we also use nutrition supplements such as Enzyme and Probiotics to enhance the healthful results from acupuncture.  Our office provides the best Chinese herbal formulas in the form of tablets, capsules or granules.
