FAQs

Answering your most asked questions so you can be prepared.

How does it work?

Your therapist targets these channels by inserting thin, sterile, filiform/solid needles into specific acupuncture points on your body. The needles encourage your body’s qi to flow out of congested areas and into empty areas so you can regain balance in your body’s meridians. The treatment can help reduce pain and improve range of motion.

What does it feel like?
The most common sensation is described as a small tapping sensation feeling as the needle penetrates the skin, followed by a potential dull ache in areas of profound stagnation. This sensation typically fades as the needles are retained for a period between 25 to 35 minutes, and patients report a deep sense of relaxation during that time.
