Frequently Asked Questions
Who can benefit from our treatments?
Acupuncture is a gentle, safe, and effective therapy that promotes your body`s own physiological processes which become weakened or pathological from injury, chronic stress, as well as long standing illnesses, and trapped emotions.
Essentially: Acupuncture is a gentle reminder to the body how to repair,regulate, and heal itself again.
How many treatments will I need?
Usually, a series of treatments is necessary to resolve a condition because research studies show that acupuncture has accumulative effects. Each case and condition is treated individually. A consultation is required to determine requirements. Treatments can be between 45 to 60 minutes in length with the first consultation usually lasting longer. It is best to consult with Bret Kottler L.Ac for more details about your specific treatment plan.
