The Acupuncture Treatment

Acupuncture needles 

Acupuncture needles are much finer than the hypodermic needles which are used for injections.  Once the needle is inserted you may feel a dull ache or tingling.  They are then left in for approximately 20 minutes depending on the condition being treated. The acupuncture needles are single-use, sterile and disposable.  Acupuncture affects people differently, leaving some energized while others feel relaxed.  The needles can also be stimulated with pressure, heat, friction or electromagnetic impulses to further activate a person’s qi.
