What you should know before you try acupuncture

Knowing up front what to expect at your first acupuncture appointment can ease your mind and bring up questions to pose early on so that there are no surprises. At our clinic, we strive to offer you the most relaxing experience. If there is ever anything that is even mildly uncomfortable physically or otherwise during your treatment, be sure to let us know.

Micronutrient injections, also known as vitamin injections, were designed to deliver high dose vitamins that many people are lacking.

It’s unavoidable.

It turns out that I did not. The FDA in the US is currently reviewing ways to reduce the risk, such as changing label laws, dosages, and packaging, or removing certain products from the shelf altogether. Considering the inherent risks of even the most ubiquitous over-the-counter medicines, it may be time to reiterate the many reasons to try acupuncture. Here are my top 5.
