Acupuncture Has 3000 Years of History
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Originating in China more than 2,000 years ago, acupuncture became widely known in North America in 1971, when New York Times reporter James Reston wrote about how practitioners in Beijing, China, used needles to ease his abdominal pain after surgery.

Research shows that acupuncture, the practice of inserting small needles into the skin at meridian points; regulating the flow of Qi (Chee), is a form of highly beneficial treatment for a variety of health conditions. Highly successful in the field of pain management, acupuncture has been used around the globe as a viable drug free alternative, offering little to no side effects to the patient.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

You should only feel a slight sensation as the needle contacts the Qi point. This feeling is known as 'deqi', or 'getting Qi'. Deqi is not an unpleasant feeling and the sensation can manifest in many forms. Commonly most people sense a dull ache, a general numbness of the area, a tingling or a sensation of heat. In some situations this sensation may travel the length of the meridian, affecting entire regions of the body.

What are the needles like?

Acupuncture needles consist of a coiled handle and an extremely fine, pointed shaft. The needles are solid and no substances being injected into the body at any point. We use only sterile, prepackaged needles during treatment, and each needle is used a single time.

During a treatment session the practitioner selects appropriate points based on the specified treatment prescribed. The points of the needles may or may not be subsequently manipulated, either manually, or by a small electronic device, this is intended to achieve certain effects. A common course of treatment may involve 10-15 individual treatment sessions, once every second or third day. However, frequency differs depending on the condition.
