Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice stemming from Traditional Chinese Medicine. Hair-thin needles are inserted into specific points on the body to unblock the flow of Qi, our body’s natural energy source, and heal from the inside out. Needle placements depend on the health conditions you’ve expressed a concern for with your acupuncturist at the beginning of the appointment.
If the thought of needles scares you, don’t worry. Acupuncture is usually painless. In fact, patients often find it very relaxing and may fall asleep during their appointments!
