Frequently Asked Questions
Is Acupuncture painful?
If you want to try acupuncture but are nervous, just let me know and I will work with you to keep needle size and retention time to a minimum.
Do I need a doctor to refer me to LOVA Health?
What insurance carriers do you accept?
How many sessions do I need?
As a general rule of thumb, the following holds true:
– For more minor, non-chronic injuries or movement challenges, we can see dramatic improvement within 4-6 sessions.
– For more major or chronic injuries or movement issues, we ballpark around 10-12 sessions.
– For severe or long-term chronic issues, it may take up to 20 sessions to see a significant resolution of your symptoms.
What should I wear?
What should I do after treatment?
I usually recommend drinking additional water to flush out the fluid we release. It is not uncommon to have slight post-workout soreness for 24 hours following treatment, and I find that this is lessened by rest, water and Epsom salt baths. The magnesium in Epsom salt is great for muscle relaxation, and the heat of a bath helps increase blood flow.
