Is acupuncture right for me?

Your Scarsdale Health & Wellness provider lets you know if acupuncture is right for you after reviewing your symptoms and medical history. They also complete a physical exam and evaluate your pulse and tongue.

Your provider might recommend blood tests or imaging procedures to find out which injury or disease you have and develop a personalized treatment plan.

Acupuncture is a safe, effective solution for just about everybody. Scarsdale Health & Wellness uses sterilized, single-use needles to enhance patient safety.

What should I expect during treatment?

During acupuncture at Scarsdale Health & Wellness, you relax on a comfortable table. Your provider inserts about 20 tiny needles into strategic areas of your body. During needle insertion, you might feel some pressure, but because the needles are so thin, you can barely feel them.

Once the needles are in your body, you relax for about 15-20 minutes. Many people describe acupuncture as a satisfying or rejuvenating experience.

How many acupuncture treatments do I need?

Your acupuncturist may recommend a series of acupuncture sessions to help you achieve optimal results.

The number of treatments you need is based on the severity of your condition and symptoms. Scarsdale Health & Wellness providers might suggest 10-15 treatments or ongoing sessions for long-lasting relief.
