During this appointment fine needles will be inserted into carefully selected pressure points along the body which correspond to the energetic meridians (highways that carry energy throughout the body) to increase circulation, alleviate discomfort/pain, and restore the body to a state of balanced.
Treatments are normally done face up and or face down on a massage table. TDP infrared heat lamps may also be used to warm the body, improve blood flow, and decrease pain. Many patients find acupuncture incredibly relaxing and may even fall asleep, or enter into a meditative state during treatment.
Acupuncture needles are not hollow like hypodermic needles - making them much thinner than you might imagine. In many cases, you will truly not feel the needle being inserted. Nonetheless, if you are sensitive to needles, a first-timer, or a pediatric patient you may choose from many other treatments including Press Needles, Ear Seeds, Gua Sha, Cupping, or Moxabustion.
