This is my first time to receive Acupuncture, what should I expect?

First, the needles are approximately the size of a cat’s whisker. Furthermore, the sensation caused by an acupuncture needle varies from patient to patient. For example, you may experience a vague numbness, heaviness, tingling or dull ache where the acupuncture needle has been inserted. Also, some people experience a little pain as the needles are inserted, or a sensation of energy spreading and moving around the needle. This is called the”Qi sensation”. All these reactions are good and a sign that the treatment is working. The depth of insertion varies from person to person. After treatment, you may feel energized or may experience a deep sense of relaxation and well-being. Learn more.
