The 10 most common questions we get about acupuncture

Is acupuncture painful?

How many acupuncture treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you will need will depend on the severity of your symptoms and how long you have been experiencing them. Your acupuncturist will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs and goals.


Will acupuncture and TCM interfere with my medical treatments?

Acupuncture and TCM are safe and natural forms of therapy that can be used in conjunction with medical treatments. Your acupuncturist will work with you and your medical team to ensure that your treatment plan is safe and effective.


What are the potential benefits of acupuncture for adult women?

Acupuncture has been found to have numerous potential benefits for women in this age group. It can help to reduce stress and anxiety, alleviate menstrual pain and irregularities, improve fertility, and alleviate symptoms of menopause. It can also improve digestion, boost the immune system, and promote overall well-being.


How does acupuncture work and what can I expect during a typical session?

Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body. These points correspond to various organs and systems in the body, and the stimulation of these points is believed to help balance the body’s energy or Qi. During a typical session, you can expect to lie comfortably while the acupuncturist inserts needles into various points on your body. The needles are left in place for around 20-30 minutes, and you may feel a slight tingling or warmth at the insertion site.


Are there any risks or side effects associated with acupuncture, and how can I mitigate them?

Acupuncture is generally safe when performed by a qualified and experienced acupuncturist. However, there are some potential risks and side effects, such as bruising, soreness at the needle site. To mitigate these risks, make sure to choose a licensed and experienced acupuncturist, inform them of any medical conditions or medications you are taking, and avoid eating a heavy meal or consuming alcohol before your session.


Can acupuncture help with common health concerns that affect women, such as stress, anxiety, and hormonal imbalances?

Yes, acupuncture has been found to be effective in treating these common health concerns that affect women in this age group. By balancing the body’s energy, acupuncture can help to reduce stress and anxiety, regulate menstrual cycles and alleviate PMS symptoms, and balance hormones for improved fertility and menopause symptoms.


How often should I receive acupuncture treatments, and how long should I expect to see results?

The frequency of acupuncture treatments can vary depending on your individual needs and goals. Generally, it is recommended to receive weekly or bi-weekly treatments for a period of several weeks or months to see the best results. However, some people may experience immediate relief after just one session. Your acupuncturist can help you determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs.


How can I incorporate acupuncture into my overall wellness routine, and what other health benefits can I expect to see beyond my initial concerns?

Incorporating acupuncture into your overall wellness routine can be a great way to improve your overall health and well-being. By reducing stress and balancing your body’s energy, acupuncture can help to boost your immune system, improve digestion, and promote better sleep. It can also help to reduce pain and inflammation, improve circulation, and promote healthy skin.

Dr Roberto Guerrero is one of the Best Acupuncturists I’ve been to between San Antonio and Northern California. Whatever you or your body needs he finds the method thru Acupuncture to relieve pain that has a lasting effect for a 1/2 week. My body had been thru a lot esp serving in the Army 21 years. I’ve been to other acupuncturists and have not had the same outcome.
