What to expect from an acupuncture treatment
An acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific acupoints. This safe and painless insertion of the needles provides adequate nourishment to cells, organs, glands, tissues and muscles. This can eliminate pain and restore balance and harmony, as well as the body’s ability to heal itself—ultimately leading to optimal health and well-being. Everyone is unique in how acupuncture feels to them. Some say acupuncture is “painless,” while others can find it to be momentarily uncomfortable. It is not uncommon for patients to become deeply relaxed or even fall asleep. If you are not comfortable with acupuncture, you can choose other non-needle methods that are also effective. Treatment typically takes 45 minutes to an hour.
