Acupuncture involves carefully inserting needles that are thinner than human hair along meridians, or energy channels, in the body. The needles stimulate Qi, restoring its flow and reestablishing balance.
People respond to acupuncture differently. Most take no notice when needles are inserted, while others are more aware of the energy the needles activate. Should you experience any discomfort during treatment, we will employ techniques to alleviate any unwanted sensations.
A typical acupuncture session lasts between 30 and 60 minutes, and we do our best to make you as comfortable and relaxed as possible during this time. After the needles have been inserted, you are asked to focus on breathing evenly and to meditate. Often, patients fall asleep which allows the needles to work the most thoroughly.
