Ms. Kim Doan Nguyen L.AC's Expert Contributions
Absolutely. If you feel uncomfortable about needles going near your neck, tell your acupuncturist. In most cases, your acupuncturist does not need to use local points to provide relief for your neck pain. I practice Balance Method Acupuncture and I do not needle where it hurts. Hope this helps!

Yes, acupuncture can balance hormones, increase circulation throughout the body, improve the quality of blood and regulate the menses, thereby increasing the likelihood of conception. It’s best to try it with your partner so the sperm is the best quality. Expect at least three months to see results. READ MORE
Absolutely. The body needs hydration after a treatment, and it will make you feel much better. I would advise avoiding alcohol and caffeine for a few hours if possible. READ MORE
Absolutely. Although weight and exercise may play a role in the knee pain, an acupuncturist can assess your case with an examination and consultation. You should start to see results within 3-6 treatments but the proper frequency is important since the knee is a joint that can often be exacerbated by routine movements. READ MORE
Yes, Traditional Chinese Medicine has its own diagnostic system separate from conventional medicine. Although medical reports can be helpful, it's not necessary to have a diagnosis to be treated by an acupuncturist. They will make their own diagnosis according to the theory of Chinese Medicine, which is holistic. READ MORE
It's not common to see infections from acupuncture. Notify your acupuncturist and s/he will probably avoid the area of the wound. Acupuncture can help wounds heal faster, naturally, by using your body's innate capabilities! READ MORE
Absolutely. Acupuncture is effective for any type of discomfort or pain in the body, unless there is a structural component that requires surgery. READ MORE
Acupuncturists like to know if you are on blood thinners because it can cause more bleeding or bruising. It can still be effective if you are on blood thinners, as we try our best to avoid capillaries, veins and arteries. I would be more cautious of prescribing herbs if you were taking blood thinners.

A licensed acupuncturist will be able to examine your case for a specific treatment plan and estimate the frequency and duration of resolution. Those who use acupuncture for maintenance at once a month will have better health because Chinese Medicine addresses all aspects of health. READ MORE
Yes, many patients find relief of their chronic fatigue through acupuncture and herbal medicine. Seeing a qualified practitioner can treat underlying imbalances in your body to enhance your health systems, focus and energy. READ MORE
I have had better results treating eczema with herbal medicine but acupuncture can reduce the inflammation in a short-term flare up. READ MORE
Yes! Acupuncture will help regulate your body's natural rhythms so proper healing can occur during rest. If we all slept better (or more), our bodies would experience less illness and stress. READ MORE
Yes it definitely can help. I would suggest getting treatment with your partner and allowing 3 months at a minimum for preconception planning. READ MORE
It can help in the short-term, some people need only a handful of treatments, but for most people the results last longer with maintenance (i.e. once a month) READ MORE
