What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the insertion of ultra thin disposable needles into acupuncture points in order to open and dilate the energetic channels and pathways of the body. By restoring the free flow of energy, many ailments and conditions can be improved or all together cleared from the body. The needles are retained in the body while the patient relaxes for about 30 to 45 minutes.

Does it hurt?

The needles are ultra thin, and the responses are varied. Many people, on most acupuncture points, do not feel pain from the needles. Energetic sensations are common, however, with the most typical sensations of tingling, vibrating, warmth, or coolness at the points or channels being needled. Some patients feel mild pain, especially when the point has a lot of stagnation, however this is not common.
