Frequently Asked Questions

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, disposable, sterile needles into specific parts of the body to alleviate pain and treat certain health conditions. It is widely accepted as an effective, non-invasive, treatment for a variety of conditions. 

Does acupuncture hurt?

Generally, acupuncture does not hurt. Some patients feel the needles as they are inserted, others feel nothing. Patients often have sensations during the treatment that range from warmth or tingling to a brief ache or heaviness in the area being needled.  Most patients describe the experience as deeply relaxing and often fall asleep during treatment.

How much training do acupuncturists receive?

Acupuncturists with a master's degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (AOM) receive approximately 80% of their education exclusively in this field and undergo a minimum of 1800 hours of extensive clinical training. Other healthcare practitioners, such as medical doctors and chiropractors, may only use acupuncture as an adjunct technique in their primary practice. 

A Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.) has obtained a 3-4 year master's degree from a school approved by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) and has satisfied all state license requirements.  ACAOM’s minimum curriculum requirement for an acupuncture training program is 1950 hours of study, with a minimum of 450 hours in the biomedical clinical sciences. 

Is there a difference in training between a licensed acupuncturist and other healthcare providers who offer acupuncture?

Absolutely. There are varying levels of education undertaken by healthcare professionals in acupuncture: 

  • A licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac) has obtained a 3-4 year graduate degree from a school approved by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (ACAOM), has passed all three of the national certification exams administered by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), and, in Arizona, is licensed by the Arizona Board of Acupuncture Examiners. 1500-2000 contact hours in acupuncture education.

  • A medical doctor, osteopath, naturopath, or chiropractor who uses acupuncture as an adjunctive technique. 300 hours or less in acupuncture education.

  • A chiropractor or detox/auricular acupuncture technician. 100 hours or less in acupuncture education.

  • A physical therapist who uses an acupuncture needle to perform dry needling in the treatment of muscle trigger points.Continuing education seminars provide approximately 40-50 contact hours in “dry needling.”

For more information on this topic, please see the article - "Know Your Acupuncturist"


Yes. Constance B. Wulkan, Ph.D., L.Ac., is licensed by the State of Arizona and Board Certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Founded in 1982, NCCAOM is the only certifying board in oriental medicine and acupuncture. To become board-certified, an acupuncturist must receive comprehensive training in traditional differential diagnosis and proper treatment methods by completing a three to four years of graduate education in a program accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM). After completion of academic and clinical training, a board-certified acupuncturist must pass a three-day written exam and demonstrate high levels of proficiency in biomedical science, acupuncture point location and theory, and oriental medical theory. 

Constance attended a 4-year nationally accredited master's degree program. That program comprised of over 3000 hours in the study of acupuncture and biomedical sciences at a post-graduate level as well as over 1000 hours of clinical residency.  She has received specialized advanced training in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and is certified to practice cosmetic and Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture.

Should I consult with my physician about acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an integrative medical modality as it seeks to work with your current medical treatment plan. Many physicians will refer acupuncture to their patients. It is advisable to always inform your physician of any treatment that you are seeking. It is also important to bring a list medications and supplements with you to your first acupuncture appointment. 

How do i prepare for my acupuncture treatments?

  • Wear loose fitting clothes, or bring shorts and a t-shirt. 

  •  Be sure you have eaten at least a light meal within a few hours prior to arriving. Avoid overeating immediately before treatment.

  • Avoid alcohol on the day of your treatment.

  • Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated after your appointment.

  • For best results, avoid strenuous activity immediately following a treatment. Set aside enough time so that you are not rushing to and from your visit.

This was the most thorough and comprehensive session I’ve ever had with acupuncture. Dr. Constance has such a great approach to integrative health. I was so relaxed and at ease during our first visit. If you are looking for a great physician who has a holistic and natural approach to the body, she is awesome. My session was amazing and I am so glad I found a place to refer my clients and family to.
— K.F., Scottsdale, AZ
I had the Facial Rejuvenation with was amazing.
Never experiencing acupuncture before, I was a little afraid. This was painless!!! I had to look to see where the needles were, because I could not feel them. Along with an incredible facial, I was educated both nutritionally and cosmetically. This is a perfect approach for me as I have just turned 60, and looking for a non-surgical route to looking and feeling younger.
— M.O., Fountain Hills, AZ
East Integrative Medicine is exceptional. I started seeing Constance after hitting a wall in my wellness journey and learned about acupuncture and cupping as methods to detoxify after years of smoking and a bad diet. The cupping is an intense experience, but I can feel my body healing a little bit more each week. Constance’s treatments are a vital addition to the lifestyle changes I had already implemented and I only wish I had found her earlier.
— A.S., Scottsdale, AZ
I am a huge advocate of acupuncture overall. It has helped me immensely in a thousand different ways. My acupuncturist Constance is the most professional, extremely positive, and wonderfully patient person. Big thanks to his particular place, acupuncture overall, and Constance as the perfect source for advocating and providing this practice.
— K.D., Phoenix, AZ
My toes made my face look younger and more radiant! Who knew? Constance Bradley Wulkan! You must go see her!
— L.F., Scottsdale, AZ
Constance was fantastic! I was a little scared and had a lot of question about having acupuncture and micro-needling but Constance was very professional and answered all my questions. My face already looks brighter and fresher, some of the fine lines are gone too. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone seeking this holistic choice over a cream or the knife.
— B.W., Scottsdale, AZ
Constance was very, through and professional. I went to try it out and have now signed up of a series of 10 sessions! The process is virtually painless and I was very skeptical. I kept thinking it should hurt, but I was able to just relax! Sign up now!
— J.S, Phoenix, AZ
Constance is amazing! I’m currently undergoing the facial rejuvenation acupuncture treatments. After only a few treatments, I’m already seeing improvements in my skin tone, texture, and appearance. My “worry lines” between my eyebrows are softer and my friends are telling me that I look rested and happy! I’m also sleeping better and I have more energy. Each treatment is relaxing and soothing; it’s like being at a very high-end spa. Constance takes the time to understand my individual concerns and to customize each treatment just for me. She explains everything and makes me feel very comfortable. I can’t recommend this place enough - if you are looking for the non-surgical way to look your best, you can’t go wrong at EAST!
— R.C., Phoenix, AZ
New experience! Best feeling ever afterwards and during. Highly recommended!
— C.S., Phoenix, AZ
I visited EAST Integrative Medicine for treatment of my ongoing lower back pain. Constance took the time discuss my medical history in detail to uncover the true cause of my pain, and tried different methods of treatment to best alleviate my pain, including an acupuncture regimen. Her patience and dedication to my health resulted in a treatment plan with immediate relief. I highly recommend EAST Integrative Medicine to anyone looking for an alternative to traditional pain medications. Thank you, Constance!
