Acupuncture originated in the Chinese culture, and has been practiced for thousands of years now and just recently the rest of the world has really taken an interest in the subject on our hunt for great alternative medicine. We are all full of an energy called Qi, Qi allows for normal bodily functions to occur. When Qi is not balanced correctly, that's when we develop symptoms of pain or sickness. Traditionally speaking, we needle in meridians which are channels where Qi flows. By balancing Qi, we as doctors are able to help with symptoms our patients are experiencing. Needle placement is dependent on the situation, and communication between doctor and patient is going to be the key to success.
With acupuncture, the needles are only inserted into the first layer of the skin, and doesn’t pierce any muscle underneath. Acupuncture needles are about 12 times smaller than a general hypodermic needle, and as thin as a piece of hair! Acupuncture is not painful. There are some areas that are more sensitive than others, but any pain felt is more like a small pinch, and the feeling does not last long at all.
