What does an acupuncture treatment feel like?

  • Being that acupuncture needles are so fine, upon insertion of an acupuncture needle you may feel a little twinge if anything at all.
  • When the needle stimulates the energy beneath the surface of the skin, a greater sensation is almost always felt.
  • This sensation is usually very short lived and differs from each person just as much as does each time you receive treatment, as your energy is different each time we see each other.
  • Most individuals find it amazing that they can feel a sensation in their chest, while they are having a needle inserted into their ankle.
  • This feeling is the energy being stimulated at an access point and what allows us to treat the entire body in a comparably non-invasive manner.
