Acupuncture

Does Acupuncture hurt?

The acupuncture needles are very thin, and most people feel little to no pain. Some patients report that they feel a slight prick when the needles enter the skin while others report feeling nothing.

How Does Acupuncture work? 

Acupuncture has been developed over 2500 years and looks at the entire body to determine where a person’s symptoms are coming from. It has been proven that acupoints are strong nervous system centers, and when a needle is inserted, the nervous system is encouraged to heal itself.
