Nervous about the needles?

Tell me more about acupuncture and the needles

If you are a bit nervous about trying acupuncture, don’t worry. Unlike needles used in Western medicine, acupuncture needles are very thin. They do not cut the skin, but displace it to stimulate the tissues beneath.

All needles used at our facility are sterile and disposable.

Depending upon the treatment plan, from one to several dozen needles may be inserted in various points on the body. They may be left in place for a prescribed period (up to 30 minutes) before removal.
