How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is a treatment method in Chinese medicine which uses very fine medical grade needles to activate specific energy points in the body. The needles work on the matrix of energy channels that cover our entire body. The functions of the needles are to circulate qi (energy) and blood, to disperse blockages, and guide energy to where it needs to go for the intended healing purpose. On average 8-10 acupuncture points are needled in a treatment session and they can be found on the head, face, ears, trunk, limbs, hands, feet, front or back of the body.   More about acupuncture

Does it hurt?

This is a commonly asked question about acupuncture, however there can be no standardized answer because everyone has different pain threshold and response. The good news is that generally acupuncture is tolerable.

With repeated treatments, most patients grow accustomed to the effects and sensations of the needles and any initial fear of the needles will dissipate.
