What to Expect During Acupuncture Treatment
Some people are deterred from getting acupuncture because they have a fear of needles. It is important to understand that the needles used in acupuncture are as thin as a hair and you will not feel pain when you get an acupuncture treatment. You can expect to sit or lie down when you are getting treatment and you will be comfortable throughout the session. Placement of the needles will depend on what is going on with your body at the time. It is best described as relaxing, and you may even fall asleep at some point during your treatment.
How Acupuncture Works
Acupuncture is designed to improve the flow of energy throughout your body. It is a treatment that has been used for centuries based on energy points on the body that can get blocked and cause symptoms. The acupuncturist will talk to you about your symptoms and use needles on specific energy points connected to where you are having issues. When the energy within your body is balanced, you are going to feel better overall. Acupuncture can be used to treat physical symptoms of pain, poor range of motion, or stiffness, while also treating emotional problems such as anxiety or depression. Acupuncture is an excellent therapy to use as a stand-alone treatment, or in conjunction with chiropractic care to heal the mind and body.
