Does it hurt?
Most people experience little or no sensation when the pins are inserted. Some people are more sensitive than others to the needles. Different brands of needles will be tried or magnets used if the sensitivity does not go away.
How many sessions will it take to “cure” me?
How many treatments needed to clear a complaint depends upon how severe it is and how long the condition has existed. Sometimes it depends upon what has already been done to treat the issue/s.
Does my insurance pay for it?
Check with your insurance. Recently more companies are paying for this service. You pay for the service at time of treatment and will be given a bill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
