How Does Acupuncture Work?
No one knows for sure. We just know it does. Perhaps the best way to think about acupuncture is to imagine rivers of energy throughout your body, organized by meridians. These meridians can experience a “log jam” and energy flow is restricted. The needles help loosen the logjam and allow energy to circulate properly.
How Long Does Acupuncture Take?
Acupuncture visits can take up to 15-20 minutes.
What Does Acupuncture Feel Like?
Feels Great! When the first ultra-fine, sterile needles are inserted at special energy points on your body, most people report a small prick, like a mosquito bite. When there is discomfort, it is usually created by vivid imaginations, not the needles! That initial discomfort tends to dissipate in a minute or two after the needle is inserted.
Post Session Feelings
Most people experience a variety of post-session feelings, which range from energized to a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
