Frequently Asked Questions
QRA Acupuncture pins are hair-thin. In fact, they are thinner than a Cat’s Whiskers. You will usually feel a little sting when the pins are inserted.
After the insertion of the QRA acupuncture pins, you will feel a very unique sensation. Each person may experience different sensations, but the most 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 pins accordingly. When performed by a trained licensed professional, QRA acupuncture is extremely safe. Only sterile and disposable pins are used here at Achieve Integrative Health
With QRA Acupuncture, you get SIDE BENEFITS… not side effects!
The number of treatments that is required varies based on the type of disorder, length of disorder, and each person’s rate of response to QRA acupuncture. In general, acute disorders may require 3-6 treatments to observe effects. For chronic disorders, 10-12 treatments may be required to observe effects. The basic principle is, if it didn’t occur overnight, it will not go away overnight.
