ALISON MORGAN ACUPUNCTURE
bringing healthy living full circle
Does acupuncture hurt?
Being that the needles are as thin as a hair, there is typically little to no sensation upon insertion. Although some people do report feeling a slight pinch. Many have said they feel the results of acupuncture treatments far outweigh any temporary discomfort.
How much does acupuncture cost?
Private practice sessions are $125 for the initial consultation and treatment and $85 for each follow-up.
How long does a session last, do I need to return frequently to maintain my results?
A typical session lasts about an hour. Acupuncture is a therapeutic modality, meaning it's effect is cumulative and does benefit from routine sessions. Depending on how long you have lived with your condition helps determine how long it will take to achieve acupuncture's maximum benefit. Like any modality, there are some individuals who do not respond to acupuncture and that can be determined within a few sessions. Once maximum benefit has been achieved the treatments frequency becomes less and less. There are many patients who only return once every 4-6 week for maintenance. A small time commitment for optimized health!
Can acupuncture, shiatsu and herbal medicine be used in conjunction with my western medical care?
Of course! Acupuncture, shiatsu and herbal medicine are frequently classified under complementary and alternative treatments. That means that they can work WITH western medicine to achieve maximum benefit for the patient. A great example of this is the use of acupuncture with fertility treatments. According to the Guardian online, acupuncture can increase IVF success rates by 65%!
Are acupuncturists licensed and regulated?
Acupuncturists are licensed and regulated by the State Board of Medicine. Alison Morgan is licensed in both NJ and PA. She is also certified by the National Certification Committee for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
