How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture points are believed to follow meridians, which are interconnected pathways through which vital energy or "Qi" flows.

When the balance of Qi is interupted, various forms of disease and dysfunction may occur, so by stimulating these acupuncture points, the goal is to restore the flow of energy to improve your health.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Most people find acupuncture needles relatively painless.

Acupuncture needles are very thin, comparable to the thickness of a strand of hair. The ends of the acupuncture needle are smooth and there are no cutting edges.

Each individual may have a unique experience but most that feel a slight sensation as the needles are inserted to the appropriate depth describe this as a tingling, warmth, or heaviness rather than pain.

If you are uncomfortable at any point during your treatment, inform your practitioner and they will make adjustments accordingly.
