Does acupuncture hurt?
Most of the time acupuncture is not painful, and it shouldn’t be. In rare cases, if you do feel a sensation of burning or sharp pain, generally that is a sign of the needle not being positioned well, please let the acupuncturist know immediately so the needle can be removed or readjusted. Another common cause of pain during acupuncture is when the patient moves their body parts where the needles are in.nmm8
What is acupuncture good for?
Acupuncture is great for pain and stress relief. It can also help many internal diseases such as digestion, immune and hormonal issues.
Do you treat children and babies?
Chinese medicine is great for children! It is safe, natural, non-invasive and effective if done properly with caution by trained TCM practitioners. In China, we have been using herbs, acupuncture and manual therapy (pediatric massage) to treat children for thousands of years. Traditional Meridian Therapy would be a great start if you are not sure if herbs or acupuncture are suitable for your children.
