Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny filiform needles at specific areas to affect change in the body. Acupuncture is commonly used for pain resolution but can also be used to alleviate many other ailments such as gastrointestinal issues, psycho-emotional symptoms, neurological disease, respiratory illness, cardiovascular issues, and many more. The acupuncturist uses the needle as a tool, like a surgeon may use a scalpel. This is how so many issues can be successfully treated.

What does acupuncture feel like?

Sensations experienced during acupuncture vary from person to person. Most people describe feeling minimal to no pain during needle insertion. Sensations like tingling, warmth, or a dull ache may occur once the needles are in place. These sensations are usually mild and are a sign that the treatment is working to rebalance the body’s energy.

Are the needles very small?

Yes, acupuncture needles are extremely thin, typically about the width of a human hair. They are much finer than the needles used for injections or blood draws. This makes acupuncture relatively painless and minimizes discomfort during treatment.

What should I expect to experience during and after the treatment?

During an acupuncture session, you’ll typically lie comfortably on a treatment table while the acupuncturist inserts needles into specific points on your body. After the needles are in place, you may feel a sense of relaxation and well-being. Some people experience immediate relief from symptoms, while others notice gradual improvement over multiple sessions. It’s common to feel relaxed and rejuvenated after acupuncture, with many patients reporting improved sleep, mood, and overall energy levels.

Initial sessions are 60-75 minutes and involve 20-30 minutes of inquiry with 30-40 minutes of treatment. Follow up sessions involve 10-15 minutes of inquiry with 45-50 minutes of treatment.
