What is a treatment like?
People get very relaxed during an acupuncture treatment It is because the needles help the energy to flow smoothly and the “pebbles in the path” usually dissipate.
What are the needles like?
Acupuncture needles are very thin. They are single use, solid (vs. syringe needles that are hollow), stainless steel, sterile and disposable. They slide in very easily and do not cause damage to the skin or muscles.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Since the acupuncture needles are so small, you may feel a pinch when the needles go in. Once the needles are in, you may not feel anything or you may notice a sensation of mild aching, warmth or heaviness near the site, which is the beneficial sensation of qi or energy moving.
