What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the insertion of extremely thin needles into the body at specific locations to stimulate blood circulation and activate natural immune response. The needles are sterile, single-use, stainless steel and are about the thickness of a cats whisker.


The National Institute of Health, the World Health Organization, and other national and international health and medical bodies now integrate and promote acupuncture as a safe, effective, and low-cost method of treatment for a wide variety of disorders.

is acupuncture safe ?

Yes. Acupuncture needles are hair-thin and inserted gently. While each person experiences acupuncture differently, most people feel only a minimal amount of sensation as the needles are inserted. Once the needles are in place, most of our patients tell us that they experience a feeling of relaxation and wellbeing that lasts for many hours after the treatment. 

When practiced by a skilled, licensed acupuncturist, acupuncture is extremely safe. Acupuncture points are located in muscle and connective tissue, so the acupuncturist will not puncture blood vessels or nerve tissue. Acupuncture needles  are pre-sterilized, individually packaged, and used only once.

What is Cupping?

Cupping is a type of Chinese therapy often used in acupuncture sessions. It can be described as a reverse massage. Instead of pressing the tissue downward, the skin and upper layer of muscles drawn upwards by negative pressure created in a cup over the affected area. The suction cups applied for 5-15 minutes and are not painful or uncomfortable.


Cupping can help to treat deep scar tissue in the muscles and connective tissue, swelling, pain and muscle knots. Sometimes cupping can cause temporary discoloration of the skin. These marks are associated with improved blood flow to the area and naturally dissipate within a few days.

How many acupuncture treatments will I need to get the desired results?

The number of treatments will depend on the nature of the complaint, its severity, and how long it has been present. Many conditions may be alleviated rapidly. Other, more chronic conditions, will be relieved with consistent and steady progress.  Chinese and Western medicine compliment each other and can be integrated to offer optimal health care. In cases where medical circumstances can be dealt with more effectively by Western medicine, your acupuncturist will recommend that you contact a physician.
