What Does Acupuncture Feel Like?

The after-effects of an acupuncture sensation has been described an an unbelievable sastisfying feeling of feeling relaxed both physically and in the mind.  A relaxation passes throughout the mind and body. Muscles are loosened and clients report much less pain or no pain.  Range of motion is restored.

Some first-time patients are sometimes concerned that needles may cause pain.  They should not as we use some of the thinnest Japanese needles (Seirin) created. Very thin, and slightly silicone-coated to enter the body with no pain or a sensation of a tiny prick once and a great while.  Japanese Acupuncture uses hair-thin, flexible needles that aren't or hardly felt when inserted. Patients often describe the energy in the meridians when a needle is minimally inserted as a relaxing, spreading sense of tranquility throughout the body and mind.

When a muscle is released by a needle, there is an instant sensation that the muscle has relaxed and the tightness, released. Most patients find these acupuncture sensations deeply satisfying healing experiences and leave feeling more relaxed or even elated.

Acupuncture treatment reduces anxiety and stress

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The benefits of acupuncture are cumulative, so more then one treatment is necessary. It also depends on lifestyle and the types of food that are eaten and drinks.

For acute conditions you can expect to have 3+ treatments, but you will usually begin to feel relief often during the first treatment. Chronic conditions may take longer to respond, depending on the type, severity, and duration of the condition. Preventative treatments and treatments for general well-being are usually once a month or maybe scheduled on an as-needed basis.  Though the weekly treatments build upon one another as the body learns a new healthy set point.  Please stay well hydrated and 3 servings of vegetables daily.  Warm soups and congees are especially good as we come into the winter season.
