How soon will I see results?

When it comes to acupuncture and NAET, results depend on several factors. Acute issues (those that are less than 6 weeks in nature) typically respond more quickly, while chronic issues take a course or series of course of treatments. A patient’s age and overall health, including diet and lifestyle, play a major role in recovery, and so those who are younger with healthier constitutions respond more effectively and more quickly. Typically, the more medications a patient takes, the longer the recovery.

Each course of treatment is 12 acupuncture sessions. At that time, a re-evaluation will be conducted to determine rate of improvement and whether another course of treatment is advised.

For patients seeking therapy for hormonal imbalance and fertility, a minimum of 4 months is recommended for both partners (male and female), as it takes 12 to 16 weeks to regulate the cycle, optimize egg quality and optimize sperm quality and quantity. For all couples trying to conceive, it is highly recommended that both partners receive weekly acupuncture treatment.

For patients seeking therapy for chronic illness, autoimmune, chronic allergies and food sensitivities, a minimum of 20 NAET (allergy elimination) treatments is advised.

What are the most common health issues addressed in the clinic?

The practitioners at Phoenix Rising do not treat anaphylaxis or life-threatening symptoms.

Does acupuncture hurt?

This is probably the most common question. No, acupuncture is not painful. The acupuncture treatments we offer at Phoenix Rising are not meant to illicit a strong, physical reaction, as that is not necessary for an effective treatment. The needles used at Phoenix Rising are the highest-grade quality available and are incredibly thin, between 38 and 40 gauge, the diameter of a hair, to ensure comfort.  

Does Phoenix Rising accept pediatric patients?

Pediatric patients are accepted on a case by case basis. There are non-needle therapies that can be used for treatment, including herbal medicine, acupoint therapy, and NAET (allergy elimination) without needles. We only advise non-needle therapy for patients under the age of 12.

How frequently should I receive acupuncture?

Ultimately, this recommendation is provided by your practitioner during your initial visit after your complete consultation. In general, the recommendations are:

For chronic conditions: twice weekly for 3 weeks, then at least weekly for 4-8 weeks. 

For acute conditions: 2-3 times weekly until condition is resolved.

For patients who choose NAET therapy: at least once weekly, but twice weekly is preferred.

For patients in maintenance phase, acupuncture sessions for overall immune support, stress relief and well being are recommended at weekly to bi-monthly.

How long are the sessions?

Initial in-person visit are 90 minutes, while in-person follow-ups are 45-55 minutes. We do offer virtual visits for functional medicine and herbal consults. 

I don’t live in the Houston area. May I still work with the practitioners at Phoenix Rising?

Yes, virtual visits are available for acute conditions and long-term care.
