Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, stainless needles at specific acupuncture points. According to this theory, qi (vital energy) and blood circulate in the body through a system of channels called meridians, connecting internal organs with external organs or tissues. By stimulating certain points of the body surface reached by meridians through needling or moxibustion, the flow of qi and blood can be regulated and diseases are thus treated.

What To Expect

The practitioner first selects appropriate acupuncture points along different meridians based on identified health problems. Then very thin, sterile, stainless steel needles with the length of half to 3 inches are inserted into these acupoints.

The patient will usually experience a feeling of soreness, heaviness, numbness and distention. The practitioner will simultaneously feel that the needle is tightened.

The patients may find that in the short term after treatment, the symptoms may in fact get worse before an improvement sets in. This is a common feature of acupuncture treatment.
