Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles at certain points located along the body’s meridians to clear blockages of energy and encourage a better flow of “Qi” or life energy through the body.
Acupuncture treatment will take around 1 hour. For the first visit please arrive 5 min earlier to fill a form.
Because the needles we use are so tiny, you may only feel a mild sensation when they are implanted but it’s more likely you’ll feel nothing at all. You may experience heaviness, warmth, or tingling at and around the needle site. This indicates that the needle has entered the meridian. You should not feel any pain at all.
