Acupuncture can be intimidating. Being poked by numerous needles sounds scary. However, acupuncture is not painful and has been practiced for thousands of years with tons of benefits. While some people may feel the needle as a tiny pinch, others feel nothing at all!
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine that involves applying needles to acupressure points. These points allow for manipulation of the body’s qi or your body’s energy flow. Sometimes there are imbalances or congestion where the flow is interrupted, causing pain. Manipulation helps restore this flow to relieve a variety of ailments.
