Common Questions About Acupuncture


Am I A Candidate For Acupuncture?

The medical literature shows acupuncture’s effect on nearly every biophysical system in the body. I’ve seen patients suffering from a wide variety of problems respond to acupuncture treatment when nothing else has worked. For most people, yes, acupuncture is something you should explore.


How Many Acupuncture Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments needed differs from person to person. For complex or long-standing conditions, one or two treatments a week for several months may be recommended. For acute problems, usually fewer visits are required, and for health maintenance, we recommend monthly tune ups.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

No. It’s very comfortable. Most people end up taking a nap during their treatment and leave feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Is Acupuncture Covered By Insurance?

If your insurance covers acupuncture, our clinic will provide a superbill to help get you reimbursed for your treatments.

What to Expect With Acupuncture


Quick & Painless

The procedure is quick and painless, you're in and out of the office in 30 minutes.

Treatment Course

The number of procedures you will need will vary based on your specific condition, the amount of time you've had it, and several other factors.

Accurate Evaluation

Once you are evaluated, the doctor will analyze your presentation and give you an estimate of the number of treatments likely needed based on clinically evidence-based data.


The Acupuncture process is repeated 2-3 times a week until maximum improvement is seen. Then a maintenance regimen is often prescribed to prevent recurrence. Maintenance may be as little as 1-2 times per month.

Absence Of Symptoms

Acupuncture can and often results in a complete absence of symptoms, even in severe pain conditions that have been present for years.

All-Natural and Effective Peripheral Neuropathy

Treatments at MD AcuMed

With more than 3 million cases per year in the U.S., Peripheral Neuropathy is pretty common. It’s often brought on by diabetes, but injuries and infections can also be a source. The peripheral nervous system connects the nerves running from the brain and spinal cord to other parts of the body such as the organs, legs, feet, arms, and hands. Peripheral neuropathy results from a series of disorders that affect the peripheral nervous system, typically mostly felt in the hands or feet. 

Blending the time-tested science of acupuncture with innovative medical solutions like Frequency Specific Micro-current, we are able to treat your peripheral neuropathy.


Our technique focuses on increasing blood flow by stimulating blood vessels for regrowth providing the peripheral nerves with the proper nutrients to heal and repair.

Acupuncture Treatment for Autoimmune Diseases at MD AcuMed

The treatment method our team uses for patients with autoimmune diseases is customized and based on their specific health conditions. While health professionals have not been able to pinpoint exactly what causes autoimmune diseases, studies have shown links that indicate ethnicity, family history, food allergies, and other triggers all play a role. Acupuncture can combat the body’s sensitivity to some of these triggers and has also been effective in stabilizing and reversing the disease, and relieving symptoms of autoimmune diseases such as pain and swelling.
