FAQ’s

Does acupuncture hurt? 
No, acupuncture should not hurt. A momentary pinch is often felt around the needle as it is inserted, eventually creating a dull pressure or tingling around the area during the treatment. Most people are amazed by how relaxed they feel during and after the treatment. This can only occur if the treatment is comfortable and gentle as with Robert’s feather insertion technique. 

Is acupuncture safe?
As long as it is performed by a competent practitioner, acupuncture is extremely safe. Acupuncturists are required to use disposable needles that are discarded after one use.

What forms of payment are accepted?
Cash or checks are accepted at the time of service.

Does insurance cover acupuncture?
Chicago Holistic Medicine will gladly provide you with a super bill to submit for insurance reimbursement. There are a growing number of plans that cover acupuncture.
