One of the most observable things today is that the industry of Mukilteo Acupuncture has been getting a lot of attention. Generally, acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that has been known to have originated in the East yet the acceptance of the modern society over the past few years is truly overwhelming.
As a clinic that specializes on natural remedies and holistic processes, we are proud to say that acupuncture is one of the best things we offer our dear clients. Being surrounded by medical technologies and innovations, we fully understand why some clients are still skeptical about acupuncture.
To shed light on some of the questions about acupuncture that are most commonly asked by prospective clients, here are some fast facts about acupuncture:
- Does it hurt? Patients who underwent acupuncture therapy reported a feeling of being pinched slightly. Needles of varying size and length enter the skin and the pinching feeling is attributed to this.
- Is pain relief the only purpose of acupuncture? Research conducted by WHO or World Health Organization points out a wide array of conditions wherein acupuncture is thoroughly beneficial. Medical conditions include infertility, digestive problems, arthritis, insomnia, stress, and many others.
- Are the needles safe? Federal law mandates that all acupuncture equipment must be sterilized. Current clinics like ours use disposable needles that guarantee not to transmit any disease.
- Is it expensive? Generally, it is not as expensive as everyone thinks. There is an industry average of $60 to $120 charge per session. Costs would depend on the nature of treatment and other service add-ons. There are also insurance companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield that does cover the cost of these types of treatments.
Acupuncture holds so many benefits for every person. It is in choosing the right clinics that makes a difference. Here at Mukilteo Acupuncture, we guarantee the best possible service along with the highest quality materials and licensed acupuncturist to give you the great benefits of acupuncture.
