  • Does acupuncture cure male infertility?

    Male infertility can be cause by too many different things to answer this question. There are some conditions that acupuncture cannot improve. Acupuncture can improve sperm parameters, including count, morphology and motility. It can also improve sexual function and libido. When you combine acupuncture with Chinese herbal formulas there are even more conditions affecting fertility that may be improved. When you see an acupuncturist for fertility it is important to bring your lab work and medical diagnosis. This will help the acupuncturist to create a treatment plan. They will tell you what they can improve and what they can't. It takes at least 3 months of treatment, sometimes more to change sperm parameters. Yvonne R.

  • Is acupuncture good in early pregnancy?

    In the hands of someone who has experience treating pregnant women, acupuncture is very safe throughout the pregnancy. The questions is, "Is it good?" It is good for morning sickness, fatigue, recurring miscarriage, which are all common things that happen in early pregnancy. Yvonne R. Farrell, DAOM, LAc READ MORE

  • What should I do after acupuncture treatment?

    After an acupuncture treatment, you should do all of the following: -take it easy -drink plenty of water -avoid cold (cold foods and liquids and cold environments) -if you need to exercise, consider walking, stretching, or restorative yoga -pay attention to how you feel after the treatment, especially in the first 24 hours This will enable you to provide better feedback to your acupuncturist on the next visit.

  • How long does an acupuncture session last?

    The effects of acupuncture vary from patient to patient. Results can last anywhere from 24 hours to permanent resolution. The factors that influence how long results last include: -Is the condition acute or chronic? Acute conditions tend to respond quickly and resolve easily. Chronic conditions take longer. -Is the most effective treatment being used? All acupuncture has an impact but the more experienced the acupuncturist is, the more likely you are to have longer lasting effects. -What you do after the treatment: it is important to follow instructions after a treatment. What you do can impact how long your treatment lasts. -How many treatments you have: the more serious or more chronic a condition, the more treatment is needed. If you have a series of treatments, the results will last longer. Yvonne R. Farrell, DAOM, LAc READ MORE

  • How long does acupressure take to work?

    I don't really have a satisfying answer for that question because acupuncture can work immediately, or it can take a while. How long it takes depends on how long you have had the condition, how bad the condition is, and how strong your constitution is. Rule of thumb is: the longer you have had something the longer it takes to restore balance and relieve suffering. Yvonne R. Farrell, DAOM, LAc READ MORE

  • What are the acupuncture points for anxiety?

    That's not really how acupuncture works. Anxiety is a condition that falls into a number of different patterns in Chinese Medicine. Points are chosen to treat each person's individual pattern of disharmony. How does the anxiety present itself? Rumination, over-thinking, palpitations? When you are anxious do you feel it in your head, chest, diaphragm, abdomen? Is it accompanied by depression or panic attacks? What makes it better or worse? All these things and more help to define the pattern of imbalance and then points are chosen for that pattern. Yvonne R. Farrell, DAOM, LAc READ MORE

  • Where is the acupuncture point for nausea?

    Not exactly sure what you are asking. Acupuncture helps all nerves by increasing circulation and tissue nutrition. If you have TMJ, Bell's Palsy, Trigeminal Neuralgia, or even post-stroke paralysis, then yes, acupuncture can help that. Yvonne R. Farrell, DAOM, LAc READ MORE

  • How long does acupuncture take to work for leg pain?

    There is no satisfying answer to that question. How quick acupuncture works is dependent on how long you have had the pain, the nature of the pain and the cause. You could find immediate relief after one treatment, but that relief may only be temporary. It may require you to have a number of treatments to resolve the pain. Chronic pain usually takes longer to respond. Yvonne R. Farrell, DAOM, LAc READ MORE

    Many patients report feeling relaxed, calm, and sometimes a little bit tired. Some say they feel more like themselves. Every now and then some patients will feel a little worse before they feel better. This is rare and usually only lasts 24-36 hours. Yvonne R. Farrell, DAOM, LAc READ MORE

  • Is acupuncture better than chiropractic?

    It is impossible to answer that question. It's like comparing apples and oranges. The answer to that question may also depend on how skilled the doctor is and what is the cause of the headache.

  • Can acupuncture prevent the flu?

    No. Acupuncture cannot prevent the flu. It can optimize your health and help you with the fear and maybe with good health you might be less likely to get sick. But you get the flu through exposure, so lifestyle choices are what are most important in avoiding the flu. Avoid sick people, wear a mask, and take care of yourself. Good sleep, a healthy diet and enough exercise help. Reducing stress can help. Acupuncture can help if you get the flu. It can reduce symptoms and help you to recover more quickly. Yvonne R. Farrell, DAOM, LAc READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture help a chronic cough?

    Chronic coughs can be caused by allergies, post-nasal drip, reflux, or other digestive problems, all of which can be helped with acupuncture. However, the symptom of chronic cough can also be a result of more serious lung conditions. It is important with chronic or lingering symptoms to have a full medical work-up prior to or concurrent with having acupuncture. Yvonne R. Farrell, DAOM, LAc READ MORE
