How Does Acupuncture Work?
Super thin (usually .16 mm – .46 mm) solid needles are inserted into the body at select points across the body. In ancient Chinese medicine, needling key points on the body promotes the flow of qi (pronounced “chee”) and encourages healing. During an acupuncture session, you may feel a dull ache, even a heavy feeling, and that can be an indication that the needles have been correctly placed. The acupuncture practitioner may adjust the needles after placement, lifting and rotating them to increase or decrease the flow of qi.
For most, acupuncture is a painless procedure. Acupuncture can easily be paired with other physiotherapy treatments like massage therapy or chiropractic to create a rehabilitation approach that meets all of your unique needs.
