Acupuncture in Cedar Park TX
Acupuncture is a 3,000 year old form of medicine that has been used by more than 8 million Americans. During a treatment very thin, solid, hairlike, needles are inserted at specific point on the body. The stimulation of these acupuncture points affects the body’s central and peripheral nervous system. It triggers the release of the body’s internal chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins, which have pain-relieving properties. The overall goal of acupuncture is to stimulate the body’s own self-healing mechanisms.
At Achieve Integrative Health we have developed an advanced acupuncture technique called the Quick Relief Acupuncture QRA technique which allows us to produce quick results for our patients, with majority of the time instantaneous pain relief.
Acupuncture points are selected on the extremities, scalp, and ears. Consequently, our patients, majority of the time, never have to take off their clothes, and the treatments are efficient, comfortable and extremely effective.
Do the Needles Hurt & Is it safe?
Acupuncture needles are hair thin. In fact, they are thinner than a Cat’s Whiskers. You will usually feel a little sting when the needles are inserted.
After the insertion of the acupuncture needles you will feel a very unique sensation. Each person may experience different sensations, but here are some common sensations: heaviness, tingling, numbness, aching, soreness, warmth or nothing at all. Should you experience any discomfort, inform the Acupuncturist and they will adjust the needles accordingly. When performed by a trained licensed professional, acupuncture is extremely safe. Only sterile and disposable needles are used here at Achieve Integrative Health
With Acupuncture you get SIDE BENEFITS not side effects!
How many treatments will it take?
The number of treatments that is required varies based on the type of disorder and each individual. In general, acute disorders may require 1-12 treatments to observe effects. For chronic disorders, 12 or more treatments may be required to observe effects. The basic principle is, if it didn’t occur overnight, it will not go away overnight.
90% of our patients receive significant or complete resolution of their pain, women’s health issues, or digestive health issues. So the sooner you call us the sooner we can help you live a PAIN-FREE and High Quality Life.
Can I receive Acupuncture if I am pregnant?
Yes. Because there are some points that are contraindicated during pregnancy, it is important to inform the acupuncturist if you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant.
Does Insurance cover acupuncture?
Many insurance companies are now paying for acupuncture treatments. Because each insurance company has different restrictions, it is best to consult with your insurance provider to determine if your treatments will be covered.
We DO file insurance; therefore, please call us to see if we are providers for your insurance company. In the case that we are not in-network providers, we will issue you a superbill, which contains all the necessary codes for you to file with your insurance company.
How do I prepare for my Acupuncture Treatments?
Please wear loose clothing where you can roll up your sleeves to your elbows and pants up to your knees and make sure you have eaten a light meal or snack prior to arriving for your treatments. DO NOT wear perfume or cologne, or strong smelling lotions, as some of our patients have severe allergies and strong smells can trigger an allergy attack and impede their treatments.
I’ve had Acupuncture before, and I know it works for me, why do I still need to come in for an Consultation?
We are a unique acupuncture clinic in that we differ from majority of other acupuncture clinics in the way we provide our acupuncture treatments. Our advanced acupuncture technique, Quick Relief Acupuncture Technique, produces faster results with majority of our patients receiving pain relief within seconds after needle insertion. However, our treatments may not be suitable for everybody. The purpose of the Wellness Evaluation is to establish your health goals and determine if our clinic can realistically help you achieve those goals. If we find that we can help you, then together we will decide which one of our programs is the better approach for you. If we find that we can not help you, then we will refer you to someone who may be able to help you.
