Acupuncture FAQ

Acupuncture is the insertion of extremely thin, sterilized, stainless steel needles into specific points on the body where there are special concentrations of qi (energy) and blood. These points are like switches or circuit breakers for regulating and balancing the flow of qi and blood in the body.

Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are extremely thin and can often penetrate the skin with no pain at all. Some areas may be more sensitive and feel like a small pinch as the needle in inserted, but that lasts for less than a second. Once the needles are in place, there should be no pain.
I got bruises on the places where I got the acupuncture treatment

It is common to have some bruises on the places where the needles were placed. Sometimes some points hurt more or there can be a little bleeding after pulling out the needles.

Bruises or little bleeding occurs because the needles touch the capillaries under the muscles. But there is no need to worry because the pain on certain acupuncture points will be gone in few hours, and the bruises disappear within days.

Are Acupuncture needles safe?
Acupuncture needles are very safe. Needles are pre-sterilized, single-use, and disposable. Our practitioners have all been trained in clean-needle technique.
How many treatments will I need?
That depends upon the duration, severity, and nature of your complaint. You may need only a single treatment for an acute condition. A series of five to fifteen treatments may resolve many chronic problems. Some treatments plans recommend 2-3 treatments per week while others recommend 1 treatment every week. However, it is not recommended getting acupuncture treatment irregularly because in that case, the result of acupuncture treatment may not build up.
Until when should I get the treatment?
You should receive acupuncture treatment until your pain is completely healed. If you stop in the middle of your treatment, the symptoms may reoccur. Some symptoms may get completely resolved by one acupuncture session, but some other symptoms are healed by 2-3 months continuous treatments. Rather than intensity of the pain itself, the duration of pain plays bigger role in deciding how soon the problem can be resolved.
The method of acupuncture needling in Yedam is different from other acupuncture clinics?

We use Korean traditional 4 needle technique instead of Traditional Chinese techniques in most of the cases.

This technique does not require direct needling onto the places where the pain is present, but it needles on hands and feet region under the joints of arms and legs. These points are very sensitive, so it may hurt a little more than the Chinese way, but the effects are much more excellent. At the same time, it does not require putting needles on risky regions like abdomen or face, which also ensures the safety of the treatment.

What if I don’t believe?
It does not matter whether or not a patient believes in the underlying philosophy of acupuncture; the body knows and will generally respond to treatment. In our experience, people don’t stay skeptical for long.
Is Acupuncture covered by insurance?

A growing number of insurance companies will reimburse for Acupuncture treatments. Patients should contact their carrier to inquire directly, or we can verify your insurance coverage in advance to the first visit.

We are in-network acupuncture provider with BCBS, CIGNA, and UnitedHealthCare at this point.

We will be happy to provide a bill for patients to submit to their carriers for reimbursement if patients want to directly deal with an insurance company. Please note that full payment is due at time of the service and we cannot guarantee reimbursement in this case.

What should I do after treatment?
It is most beneficial to be able to relax and rest after treatment. Please avoid excessive physical activity, stressful situations, alcohol, and caffeine for a few hours after treatment.

Herbs FAQ

Herbal medicine has been helping people stay healthy for thousands of years. Herbs function much like the drugs we are familiar with today; in fact, many of today’s drugs are derived from herbs. Aspirin for example is made from Willow bark. Herbal medicine can treat acute illnesses, such as colds and flus; can tonify a system, like the cardiovascular system; and can help manage a chronic illness, giving you a better quality of life. Herbal medicine can be very effective in addressing both broad health goals and treating specific symptoms. Herbal medicine aims to correct imbalances, resolve patterns of dysfunction, and treat the underlying cause of your health concern. Herbal medicine is another treatment modality to be used in conjunction with diet and nutrition to complete your health plan and help your body restore itself to wholeness.

How is herbal medicine different from pharmaceutical drugs?

herbal medicine is clinically and conceptually different from western pharmaceutical drugs and even western folk herbalism. The model of western medicine treats diseases or symptoms without regard to their cause or etiology and side efffects are both common and accepted. In comparison, patients receive a herbal prescription designed to treat the underlying root cause or patterns. In order to treat the entire individual without side effects a herbal medicine formula may contain 5 to 20 different herbs. Herbs when used in conjunction with Acupuncture produce an effective regulatory effect on the body that is much gentler than pharmaceuticals.

How are Herbs Administered?

The traditional method of preparing herbs is to cook the raw herbs in water to form a decoction or tea. Depending on the condition and circumstances, the herbal practitioner may recommend taking the herbs in pill or capsule form, as an extract or in a powdered or granulated form.

What is herbal medicine good for?

Herbal medicine is appropriate for both acute and chronic conditions. It treat acute diseases, like intestinal flu and the common cold, as well as chronic diseases, such as allergies, gynecological disorders, chronic degenerative and viral diseases. Herbal medicine can also be used preventively for many conditions including providing help to women avoid many menopausal complaints, as well as people suffering from seasonal allergies. Herbal formulas are also available for cancer patients to help diminish the side effects of chemo and radiation therapy. In addition to acupuncture, you may be prescribed an herbal formula and given nutritional or lifestyle recommendations.
