David C. says, "When I first sought hypnotherapy for weight loss, I reached out to Farzin, and he promptly replied and explained how hypnotherapy could address unresolved issues from my past. With Farzin's guidance, I've achieved the life I deserve.      My life was a mess. I am strong, but I could not resolve my issues and find peace and happiness despite all my strengths. I tried several times alone, and the results were always the same: still unhappy.      Hypnotherapy opened my eyes and heart, allowing me to listen to my special needs and reconnecting me with God. I will always be thankful for Farzin's insightful wisdom and guidance, which helped me return to the peacefulness that now lives within me.      Once Farzin and I started to explore my past, the changes in my life were like dominoes falling. I could open my soul and heart and hear the truth about myself. As each day progressed, I became strong, and when the negative thoughts entered my head, I could dismiss them. This is something in my 70-plus years that I have not been able to do in the past. I felt reborn each day as I progressed, and I will continue this journey for the rest of my life.      My original reason for seeking hypnotherapy was to lose weight, as I had become too lazy to do it on my own. Farzin and the hypnotherapy opened my eyes to the real problem, and now my life is full of peace and happiness. I am proud of the work Farzin, and I put into returning to a daily spirituality that allows me to understand that God has a plan for me and that I am reborn each day God gives me. Honestly, the change is beyond words.      I look forward to a much brighter, more peaceful, and happier life. Each day is a gift, and I am excited to learn and grow.      Hypnotherapy is a tool that can assist you in reaching your life goals; however, it requires your active participation and adherence to the hypnotherapist's guidance to attain the goals you have set.      I hope anyone reading this will take a self-inventory and explore whatever avenue makes you happy with yourself and life.""

Paola B. says, "The whole experience was very uplifting yet relaxing too. Rogel was very respectful and professional. His caring demeanour really put me at ease at the beginning of the session, and he explained everything about how the session was going to proceed before he got started. The reiki healing itself was very effective in terms of how I felt afterwards, and Rogel gave me great tips on what to do after the session to maximise its benefits. I had an ongoing neck pain and while the pain did not go completely away I felt like it help dissipate my symptoms and start the healing . It's been a pain free month so far! For anyone curious about reiki and healing in general, I thoroughly recommend a session with Rogel. He is experienced in what he does and on top of that, is a wonderful and kind human being."

Your acupuncture services questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does acupuncture cost near me?

Acupuncture costs $75 to $120 per session on average. The initial evaluation typically costs $100 to $180, including the first session. The total cost depends on the specific treatment type, location, and skill level of the acupuncture practitioner. Discounts are sometimes available when booking multiple sessions.

What is acupuncture and how does it work?

Acupuncture is the process of a doctor applying tiny pre-sterilized needles into the meridians of the patient's body to trigger a natural healing response. This holistic treatment is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine that does not interfere with any medications.

Acupuncture works with the whole nervous system to promote health of the full body and mind.

What is acupuncture good for?

Acupuncture is good for treating:

  • Chronic pain of all types
  • Muscle and body tissue injuries
  • Inflammation in the joints
  • infertility and menstrual problems
  • Obesity and indigestion
  • Sciatica
  • Migraines
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety and mood swings

What to expect from an acupuncture session?

An acupuncture session typically includes a discussion of which ailments to address in the session, after which you relax on a massage table. The doctor places the tiny, single-use needles where treatment is needed, and you lie still for 20 minutes to 1 hour according to the therapy type.

You may feel a bit sore in some areas after the session, but it passes within a few days as your body clears out any blockages that were released.

How do you prepare for an acupuncture session?

To prepare for an acupuncture session, follow these tips:

  • Don't go to the session on an empty stomach, but you should allow 1 hour between your last meal and the session.
  • Avoid drinking caffeine and alcohol for at least an hour before the appointment.
  • Wear loose and comfortable clothing.
  • Bring a list of current medications to show the acupuncturist.
  • Take a bathroom break before you enter the treatment room.

Is it safe to use acupuncture?

Acupuncture is safe when performed by a licensed practitioner who has completed a full, multi-year course in Traditional Chinese Medicine. All acupuncture treatments are non-toxic.

Still, you should exercise caution in choosing your specialist if you have:

  • A pacemaker
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Epilepsy
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture typically doesn’t hurt or cause discomfort. Most people only experience a mild pricking sensation from the needles, after which the needles feel weightless. There is no discomfort when the specialist removes all the needles at the session's end.

You can tell the acupuncture practitioner if an area is more sensitive, and they will adjust the position or remove the needle to accommodate you.

Is acupuncture covered by insurance?

Some insurance policies do cover acupuncture. For example, Medicare began covering acupuncture visits to treat chronic lower back pain starting in 2020 as a pain-medication alternative. Contact your insurance company and ask how much your co-payment is and what they cover.

How do you find a good acupuncture specialist?

Browse through our listings on Thervo to find a good acupuncturist.

Use this helpful checklist to choose the right one for you:

  • Compare at least 3 fee schedules from practitioners with 5+ years of experience.
  • Read their reviews on Thervo and Google.
  • Select insured and licensed professionals who've completed training in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
  • Avoid the cheapest treatments that suggest low-quality standards.
  • Get a copy of the terms of service and appointment cancellation policies.
  • Avoid making the final payment before receiving the treatment.

What questions do you ask an acupuncture practitioner?

  • How long have you been treating patients with acupuncture?
  • Where were you trained?
  • Have you helped other patients with my conditions before?
  • Can you recommend any dietary supplements to help my healing process?
  • How many sessions will I need to experience results for this condition?
  • Will I need to take a nap after this session?
  • How should I alert you if I experience any discomfort after you've left the room?
  • Do you use any other acupuncture treatment enhancements like aromatherapy or sound therapy?
  • Can you perform acupuncture on my pets?

"I decided to take on your hypnotherapy service to help take care of old memories that have been affecting me for the last 20 years. Despite trying various solutions, including medication, nothing was working. Therefore, I decided to try hypnotherapy, hoping that your expertise could finally provide the relief I need. Before I took on your hypnotherapy service, my life was significantly impacted by my past. I was always haunted by my old memories, and this was especially true regarding the people in my life, particularly my in-laws. These unresolved issues had a profound effect on my overall well-being, making it difficult to move forward and find peace. Before starting hypnotherapy, I was always scared because of how it was interpreted in movies. I worried that it could hold people in their past and they wouldn't be able to return. However, working with my hypnotherapist cleared up these misconceptions. He explained how hypnotherapy works, assuring me that it doesn't erase past memories but can change how I perceive them—basically not giving them the importance I had been. Despite my skepticism, I decided there was no harm in trying, and I am glad I did. Through the process of hypnotherapy, I've experienced significant changes, transformations, and healing. No doubt, there are times when my past comes to mind or certain occasions trigger those old memories. However, I noticed that it's now like a simple click, and the memory clicks away. I don't get into deep thinking and cry over it anymore. Instead, I'm able to put the past aside and look forward to peace. I've learned to go with the flow and embrace a more positive outlook on life. Since I began your hypnotherapy service, I have been capable of letting go of things that used to weigh heavily on my mind – this has brought me peace. In fact, I can't help but feel a twinge of regret for not seeking out hypnotherapy sooner. I realize now how much time I wasted dwelling on painful memories. However, I'm grateful for the progress I've made and the positive impact it's had on my life - my ability to turn negatives into positives. Furthermore, I've been able to forgive those who have hurt me in the past. This act of forgiveness has not only released me from the burden of resentment but has also contributed to my overall sense of well-being and inner peace. Overall, engaging in hypnotherapy has enabled me to let go of the past, embrace positivity, and cultivate forgiveness in my life. Since taking on your hypnotherapy service, I envision a life where I can approach challenges with a positive mindset, equipped with the ability to forgive not only the past but also anything in my present. This journey has empowered me to embrace life's journey with resilience and optimism. If you're considering taking on hypnotherapy service, my advice is to go for it without a second thought, especially when nothing else seems to work. There's truly nothing to lose, and everything to gain. Farzin helped me not only set aside things that were consuming my time and health but also provided the tools to start living a more positive life - especially talking to my inner child. Plus, I also found a good friend in the process. Don't hesitate to embark on this journey—it could be the key to unlocking your own personal self that has been lost in the past. When it feels like there's no light at the end of the tunnel, consider giving hypnotherapy a try. It could be the path that leads you towards healing and brighter days ahead. Thank you Farzin!"

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing a remote Reiki session with Rogel, and it was a great experience. First and foremost, Rogel was very detailed in explaining how the session would flow and patiently answered all my questions, creating a serene and calming atmosphere despite the physical distance between us. I am looking forward to continuing my remote Reiki treatment with Rogel.
