targeting pressure points to relieve pain
How Does Acupuncture Work?
There are acupuncture points situated all across your body. Sometimes the points used in acupuncture are not anywhere close to where you are experiencing pain. When treating specific types of pain we will be sure to let you know the areas we will focus on in your treatment.
Acupuncture therapy uses hair-thin, solid, metallic needles that are inserted at specific points through your skin and inserted at differing depths into the skin offering relief from pain as well as offer other therapeutic benefits.
Be assured that most patients feel little to no pain as the needles are inserted. In fact, some report that they feel more energized by acupuncture treatment, and others report they feel more relaxed.
