In acupuncture, solid, filiform acupuncture needles, ranging in size from 13-70 mm in length, are inserted into the skin at specific points. According to ancient Chinese medicine, this process of inserting needles is therapeutic, as it encourages healing, improves mood, increases energy, reduces or relieves pain, and improves function.

Acupuncture needles are left in place for 15-30 minutes, and patients often feel a dull, heavy or achy feeling, which indicates that the needle is correctly placed.

Our practitioner may manipulate the needles by lifting, twisting or rotating them in order to increase or decrease the flow of qi (“chee”)—life energy—through your body. This process is safe and virtually painless.
