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?

Reviews for Sunnyvale acupuncturists

Recent success stories from people in the Sunnyvale area.
I decided to explore hypnotherapy to address my chronic procrastination. Before embarking on this hypnotherapy journey, I was plagued with constant self-criticism because I could not live up to my own expectations and potential. I felt disillusioned and frustrated for never following through or completing some initiative and goals which I have undertaken. I had never undergone hypnotherapy before so working with my hypnotherapist, Farzin, was the first time. On my initial appointment, Farzin explained precisely how the hypnotherapy session would be conducted and what to expect. He answered all the questions I had and was mindful to ensure that I felt comfortable with the process. Because I had never had hypnotherapy previously, trust was essential for me. From our first meeting, Farzin made me feel comfortable, and I could put my trust in him. With his guidance, I have been able to peel the layers and take a deeper look inside myself and do the necessary work needed to transform my life. I can honestly say that I was stunned to start noticing changes almost immediately after my initial hypnotherapy session. The very first thing I noticed was that I was eager and looking forward to getting to my To-Do list every morning! At the end of each day, my heart feels full of a sense of accomplishment. I go to bed, patting myself on the back and celebrating my efforts instead of the negative verbal and mental flagellations which marked my days' end in the past. Most remarkedly, I have garnered insight into the root causes of my procrastination. I now have a deeper understanding of who I am and why I do what I do. Since my hypnotherapy, I feel happier and more accomplished. I was able to get some things done in the 30days of hypnotherapy that I had procrastinated for 3 years!!! I am finding that I am not afraid to take on new challenges and jump right in and land on my feet. What I find amazingly peculiar and love is that it registers clearly and prominently on my memory when I have committed to getting something done. It is as though I have now developed a very visual mental To-Do list and can clearly see what has been ticked off as completed or not so that I can course-correct. I LOVE it!!! Additionally, I am finding that I am not afraid to take on new things and am realistic about what I can do. I no longer feel overwhelmed and am setting the appropriate boundaries (yet another unexpected by-product of hypnotherapy). I now have a better grasp of things that used to frustrate me previously. What has been incredible is this sense of feeling that "I can do anything!" and I am excited about the possibility of using hypnotherapy in other areas of my life. This has been a life-changing experience for me. I have had a mind-shift, and I see personal rewards beyond the initial goals I had envisioned for myself. Farzin is a highly skilled professional and healer who is kind, very understanding. He is also very insightful and knows how to make people feel comfortable. After having completed my initial sessions, I now feel empowered to go out into the world and begin living the life I had always envisioned for myself but has eluded me for so many years! If you are looking for a hypnotherapist, who is insightful and can quickly get to the core of your fundamental issues to provide you with guidance and a tool-kit to healing, I highly recommend Farzin.

I had an hour foot reflexology treatment today, my first experience with Celestial Healing. Galina is so passionate about helping people feel their best. She is very talented and bursting with enthusiasm and great advice. Her place is clean and comfortable, her hands are amazing. Thank you so much, Galina. I will definitely be back.

The results were remarkable. Incredible healing crisis immediately after the first session, but after a few weeks, a profound shift occurred which hadn't happened with any other type of healing method over 20+ years.

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.
