Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin, sterile needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain, but can also be used for depression, insomnia, allergies, migraines and other various ailments.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as “qi” or “chi” (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.
Acupuncture rarely ‘hurts’. The most that people experience is a dull ache around the base of the inserted needle, or a slight tingling feeling when the needle is inserted. Points at the extremities, like toe or finger ends, can sometimes be a little sharp, but the sensation is usually brief. Most find acupuncture to be a deeply relaxing & therapeutic experience.
