What is an Acupuncture Treatment Like?
Patients receiving their first acupuncture treatment are often worried that it will be painful. After all, the sound of “needles” is a little scary. Rest assured that acupuncture is not painful at all. The needles are very tiny, and they’re only inserted into the most superficial layer of your skin. Many patients don’t feel them at all, or feel only a slight tingling as the needles are inserted.
An acupuncturist understands that your overall experience is very important. That’s why acupuncture offices are set up to facilitate relaxation. The lights are low, the décor is soothing, there may be quiet music or nature sounds, and your acupuncturist will do everything possible to help you feel completely relaxed and calm throughout your treatment. After experiencing it, most patients look forward to their acupuncture treatment sessions.
