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
Acupuncture points are inserted in mapped out precise spots on the body. These spots when needled produce powerful functions such as reducing back pain, releasing the shoulders, inducing sleep and calming the mind. Other points are inserted in carefully palpated area’s of pain. Needling area’s of pain has been proven to reduce inflammation and restore nerves so finding the exact spot is what we’re amazing at!
Combining clinical Acupuncture with cupping moxibustion and /or gua-sha provides profound restorative benefits. The relaxation response created by the massage helps calm clients, enhancing clinical acupuncture results.
