Acupuncture is the ancient practice of treating illness and various conditions by gently inserting fine needles used to manipulate the body’s natural energy, qi (pronounced “chee”). More than 400 acupuncture points are mapped throughout the entire body that can be used to guide qi toward areas needing a boost and move qi in areas that are stuck and painful. In addition to needling, our acupuncturists use various supportive techniques such as cupping or moxibustion and will always do their best to help feel as comfortable as possible and allow you to relax.
The most common concern we hear new patients express is that acupuncture might hurt. Some patients report feeling a sensation comparable to a mosquito bite as the needle is inserted. Some report sensations of tingling, heat, distention, or energy moving throughout the body during treatment, all of which are normal experiences of feeling qi moving. We encourage you to ask questions and express any concerns you may have early in your session so you are able to relax more deeply during your session.
