Acupuncture sessions take place in a clean, comfortable and tranquil setting. Most patients find acupuncture to be very relaxing; in fact, it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during a treatment! Acupuncture does NOT hurt, on the contrary, most people barely feel the insertion of the needle. A sensation of heaviness may be felt in the points after needle insertion, this is completely normal and is explained as the “arrival of qi” to the point. All needles are sterile, single use, and made of metal. The needles are very fine and bear no resemblance to hypodermic needles—ones that are used during blood draws and other medical procedures.
