What does Acupuncture feel like?

Feels Like

Acupuncture consists of the gentle insertion and stimulation of thin, disposable, sterile needles at strategic points near the surface of the body in order to promote the circulation of Qi and adjust the imbalance of Yin and Yang. The needles are much finer than the familiar hypodermic needle. After the insertion of the needles, patients may feel the pressure or distention, which means the arrival of Qi, instead of feeling pain. Acupuncture has been proven to stimulate the release of opiate-like hormones and induce a deep state of relaxation, balance and healing.

Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.
