Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture needles are 25-50 times thinner than a hypodermic needle. They are so thin that several acupuncture needles can go into the middle of a hypodermic needle. There is little sensitivity to the insertion of acupuncture needles.

While some people feel nothing at all; others experience a brief moment of discomfort as the needle penetrates the skin that can be followed by a mild sensation of tingling, numbness, traveling warmth, or heaviness.

Most people find the experience extremely relaxing and uplifting and even fall asleep for the duration of the treatment.

It is common to experience soreness during and after an acupuncture treatment.  It is important to let your acupuncturist know immediately so that they can make you more comfortable. 

If you are sensitive to acupuncture or ‘needle-phobic’ your acupuncturist can use thinner needles and be gentler. Be sure to speak up and let the practitioner know how you are feeling!

Are there any side-effects or risk to the treatment ?

Acupuncture is almost zero side effects. But people with pacemakers should avoid electrical acupuncture. Also let your acupuncturist know, if you are pregnant.

Are there any other techniques that do not use a needle during acupuncture treatment session?

We also provide acupunpressue, electrical stimulation or laser stimulation.

What is cupping ?

Cupping is one kind of ancient therapy that cup improves qi and blood circulations, and
dispels stagnation by sucking cups on the skin of back, neck, shoulder and other area of body.

Cupping has been used for thousand years in fighting diseases and injuries. In ancient time, people in Asian and Europe found that effectiveness of cupping when they fought with diseases and injuries.

Over time, cupping therapy has spread into all over the world. Cupping is used to treat respiratory diseases (such as common cold, pneumonia and bronchitis), arthritis, fertility and gynecological disorders, and skin problems (eczema, acne).

It is claimed to help general physical and psychological well being and pain management.
