Acupuncture Needles


What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves a collection of procedures that penetrate the skin with needles to cause a response in different parts of the body. It is an ancient form of Chinese medicine and has been used for thousands of years, making it one of the oldest medical techniques in the world.

How does acupuncture work?

There are certain points in the body that have a designated electrical sensitivity. The insertion of thin needles targets sensory receptors that transmit impulses to the brain. In turn, endorphins and neurotransmitters are released, which are the body’s natural painkillers.

These substances help your entire body relax and regulate serotonin. Serotonin release allows for the treatment of depression with acupuncture.

What makes acupuncture so effective?

By addressing the root of the problem, this holistic medicine often works well for those that have not gotten results with Western medicine. There is a low probability of any side effects occurring.

Does acupuncture hurt?

No, acupuncture is not painful. You may feel a tingling sensation during treatment. Afterward, patients commonly report feeling extraordinarily relaxed or exhilarated. With doweled ends, acupuncture needles are not the same as other needles you may have encountered.

Is acupuncture safe?

When you see a licensed, fully trained acupuncturist, it is extremely safe. Our practitioners are qualified and experienced.

Is there anyone who cannot receive acupuncture?

There are only a few situations in which acupuncture is not appropriate. If you have a hemophiliac or psychotic condition or are under the influence or alcohol or drugs, we do not recommend acupuncture.
