Sterile and Safe and Painless
Acupuncture needles are very fine and flexible, about the size of a human hair. They bare no resemblance to the needles used when receiving an injection. In most cases, insertion by a skilled practitioner is performed with minimal discomfort. All needles are used only once and each point is alcohol swabbed prior to insertion. A new individual needle is opened from a sterile and sealed package for each point applied.
How Acupuncture Works
Both Acupuncture and shiatsu therapy are based on the same Chinese Medicine principals. Combining clinical Acupuncture with Shiatsu, cupping or moxabustion provides profound restorative benefits. The relaxation response created by the massage helps calm clients, enhancing clinical acupuncture results.
