Acupuncture FAQS

Does acupuncture hurt?

For most people, acupuncture causes minimal to no pain. The needles used are very fine. A patient may feel a slight prick similar to a mosquito bite when the needle is first inserted. At times, a tingling, dull ache or warm sensation may be experienced at the point where the needle is inserted. This is the desired effect and should not be uncomfortable. Often, during acupuncture the treatment a patient feels so relaxed that he will fall asleep.

Chinese Food Medicine

Chinese medicine uses not only herbs but also different foods as a means of treating a disease: food medicine. They substitute medication and therefore have a better effect on the body. A prerequisite of a successful application of food cures is the precise examination and diagnosis of the patient. The practitioner should pay attention to a combination of factors: patient's constitution, illness, the current season and climate.
