Does it hurt?
More and more people are starting to see the natural healing benefits of Acupuncture, however we still get many questions about this ancient therapy that we will answer today!
Does it actually work?
However, it is important to keep in mind acupuncture should not be used as a cure all. Since acupuncture is completely natural with little to none side effects, it can be used in conjunction with any other treatment you are receiving or any current prescriptions or pain medications you’re taking. Acupuncture has actually helped our patient’s decrease their dosage of pain medications or stop their reliance all together.
Does it hurt?
Nope! Acupuncture needles are extremely thin. Some patients are so comfortable they fall asleep during their treatments! The most pain you may feel is a dull ache at the base of the needle when inserted or a slight tingling sensation. If it is your first time getting acupuncture, you may feel light soreness following your treatment. This is normal and usually subsides the day after.
It’s also extremely safe. It is an all-natural, drug free therapy, yielding no side effects and is virtually painless. Only sterile needles are used and are discarded after each use. However, it is important to use a licensed, trusted professional whom you trust. It is advised to research acupuncturists in your area and set up a meeting with your potential provider. As with any medical professional, it is important that you feel comfortable and safe in his/her presence!
