Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
This process is believed to adjust and alter the body’s energy flow into healthier patterns, and is used to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions.
It involves the use of sharp, thin needles that are inserted in the body at very specific points.
Acupuncture needles are always sterilized and acupuncture is a very safe procedure. The needles generally do not cause pain. Patients sometimes report pinching sensations and often pleasant sensations like relaxation, as the body experiences healing.
The average length of time for acupuncture is about thirty minutes. The number of visits varies with some conditions improved in one or two sessions and others requiring a series of six or more visits over the course of weeks or months.
