How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture is a procedure that stimulates the body to redirect energy in the body's meridians or pathways by inserting needles in the body's acupuncture points.  It is one of the key components of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Does it hurt?

Acupuncture needles are different from the needles that are used to administer shots.  Acupuncture needles are crafted as thin as hair and virtually painless.

Who is eligible for acupuncture?

Acupuncture can be done on people of all ages ranging from small children to the elderly.  As it is only balancing the body’s immunity and repairing functions, even people with most of problematic ailments are able to benefit from acupuncture treatment.

What can I expect after treatment?

For acute conditions, patients may get instant relieve after treatment. For chronic conditions, it may take more sessions.  Acupuncture is a process aiming to resolve root causes rather than symptoms.
