The Chinese believe we have 14 meridians (channels) to which Chi (energy) flows, connecting with our internal organs. So, muscular skeletal and internal organ disorders can be influenced by inserting needles at certain points along these meridians. Acupuncture acts as a catalyst to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. Very fine (single use) needles are used at key points to gently stimulate the flow of energy.
Very rarely do the needles cause pain. Most people say they do not feel anything.
The finest sterilized single use needles are used at our clinic. The technique of insertion is the key to acupuncture being painless.
