How can we help you? Typical treatments at Sanar Healing Acupuncture
Acupuncture for Pain
Acupuncture is an ideal option when patients cannot use or prefer not to rely on painkillers or when other standard treatments have been unsuccessful.
Positive results are often reported when we treat chronic low back pain, sciatica, arthritis, neuropathies, neck pain, fibromyalgia, menstrual cramps, Carpal tunnel syndrome, and severe pain in many other body parts.
This therapy is usually well-tolerated with little risk of adverse effects. It is used to treat diseases that produce pain or other related symptoms.

How does it work when you come to Sanar Healing Acupuncture?
FREE Initial Phone Consultation
An initial patient evaluation is necessary to know if we can treat your condition. During this consultation, we will ask for some information and answer all your questions. In the end, if everything is correct, we will set up your appointment.
FREE Insurance coverage verification
Please have your insurance information handy when you request your appointment.
The first appointment will consist of a complete assessment to acquire as much information as possible about your case. We will perform a physical assessment to review aspects such as:
- The parts of your body that are painful
- The shape, coating, and color of your tongue
- The color of your face
- The strength, rhythm, and quality of the pulse in your wrist
With all this information, we will make specific recommendations and treatments to cater to your health problems. We will decide the number of sessions necessary and their frequency.
Acupuncture sessions can be 45 minutes or less, depending on the treatment. It’s common to receive six to eight treatments over several weeks—usually with weekly appointments. However, this might vary depending on the condition and its severity.
On average, treatment involves inserting 5 to 20 acupuncture needles. To further stimulate the area around each needle and enhance their effect, we may delicately rotate them or apply heat or mild electrical pulses.
During the Acupuncture session, you will be comfortably situated on a massage table in a relaxing environment of gentle lighting and calming music. For many patients, it is such a peaceful atmosphere that they feel relaxed enough to nap!
What are the benefits of Acupuncture?
This approach helps to produce long-term health benefits because it considers your overall lifestyle and habits to address your problems from their roots instead of simply inspecting the symptoms.
Since Acupuncture does not prescribe pharmaceutical chemicals, it has not been reported that it can affect your medical treatments.
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine method that follows standards from the World Health Organization. If you have a medical treatment, in many cases, Acupuncture allows you to reduce or eliminate prescription drugs and their side effects.
Always ask your doctor if this approach is safe for you.
Mild Side Effects
Statistics show this may happen in less than 0.2% of cases but more likely in those using blood thinners.
What results to expect after the procedure
After treatments, we recommend a whole night’s sleep or at least a few hours of relaxed physical activity.
Acupuncture uniquely affects each patient, with some feeling recharged and others experiencing blissful relaxation.
Acupuncture could affect people differently; many report excellent results, while others experience little to no improvement.
Acupuncture treats the origin of the health disorder not only the symptoms.
Acupuncture techniques at Sanar Healing Acupuncture
Auricular acupuncture has been used in oriental medicine for centuries. Some patients reported that it successfully treated various symptoms ranging from physical health issues to psychological distress.
It’s a popular method of acupuncture now as it’s believed to help as an alternative medicine for weight loss, digestive problems, tension headaches, chronic low back pain, and chronic pain overall.
This cutting-edge treatment may relieve tension headaches, neck pain, and muscle pain. In addition, it could effectively solve many other problems involving overall chronic pain.
Herbs recommended at Sanar Healing Acupuncture are produced under pharmaceutical manufacturers’ US quality standards. They are often used as complementary and alternative to western medicine drugs.
It is believed these herbs could help with infertility, balance hormones, fibromyalgia, boost nervous system function, and reduce inflammation, among many other uses. So far, almost no side effects have been reported.
What's new with Acupuncture in the US?
Hospitals and clinics are now offering medical Acupuncture services.

What is Acupuncture?
The needles’ effect may be combined with mild electrical stimulation and heat.
These points are believed to be connected to the body’s organs, muscles, and other body tissues. It’s thought that stimulating these Meridian points can improve energy flow, balance, and overall bodily functions and health.
How Acupuncture Works?
Some studies suggest that Acupuncture may stimulate energy pathways to produce the release of neurotransmitters in the nervous and circulatory systems.
For pain treatment, thin needles are believed to stimulate energy flow and release endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, among other effects.
Acupuncture deals with stress and other issues by affecting the part of the brain that governs serotonin, a brain chemical involved with mood and other functions in the connective tissue.
All this could explain the leading biochemical reactions in muscles, the brain, and the circulatory system that produce the healing and treat diseases.
How Acupuncture Works at Sanar Healing?
Most of our patients report improved conditions after receiving the recommended treatment at their specific Acupuncture points. However, Acupuncture may not work for everyone or every problem.
There are many reasons why a person may suffer from a condition, such as genetics, lifestyle habits, stress, accidents, the environment, and other forms. Therefore, to experience benefits from Acupuncture, most factors involved should be addressed.
Depending on the type of problem, patients treated by combining medical Acupuncture, herbs, diet, exercise, and lifestyle modifications, increase the chances of a timely full recovery.
Does Acupuncture hurt?
However, every human body is different; some patients might feel slightly pricked when the needle penetrates. Although, this sensation usually fades away when the needles are in place.
What are Acupuncture risks?
Bruising and numbness can occur if the needles are not inserted properly at the correct depths or angles of acupuncture points.
Acupuncture may cause soreness, minor bleeding, or bruising where the needles are inserted. The chances of this happening may increase if you have a bleeding disorder or are taking blood thinners.
For Electroacupuncture use, we must know if you have a pacemaker and any other medical devices in your body that may be affected.
Special procedures must be taken into consideration for pregnant women.
Acupuncture treatment Costs and insurance coverage
A single Acupuncture treatment typically ranges between $70-$110 depending on the complexity involved, which is reasonable when considering bringing relief and improving overall health and wellness in a holistic and drug-free way.
We offer discounted prices for session packages for uninsured and uncovered patients.
Many insurance companies in South Florida and Medicare now provide coverage for some Acupuncture treatments, ensuring more individuals have access to advanced alternative medicine.
We check if your insurance policy covers Acupuncture treatments.
Acupuncture clinical trials
Although most studies show favorable effects on how Acupuncture works, there are some cases in which results are inconclusive, and the problems are the following:
- The repeatability of the results
- The limited number of patients with precisely the same medical condition
- The uniformity of control groups taking placebo-type treatments
- The influence of psychological aspects
Furthermore, it is estimated that successful Acupuncture treatment studies and systematic reviews are often limited because people need to follow the therapeutic protocol, and treatment sessions are not strictly followed.
Therefore, more scientific research is needed to verify Acupuncture treatments’ effectiveness and develop effective therapeutic protocols in diverse clinical conditions.
However, thousands of treatments are performed daily worldwide; most patients report satisfactory results.
Here, you can find links to some of these clinical studies.
