ANSWERS FOR FIRST-TIME ACUPUNCTURE PATIENTS
- What does acupuncture feel like? - Most people find acupuncture to be very relaxing. Patients often describe the needle sensation as a tingling or dull ache, and this is one of the signs the body's qi (chi), or vital energy has been stimulated. Once in place, the needles are hardly noticeable.
- I'm scared of needles - can I still have acupuncture? - Yes. HeartLight's needles are much finer than the needles used in your doctor's office. Treatment includes inserting these sterile, hair-thin needles lightly under the skin at cardinal points along the body's energetic pathways.
- How will I feel after an acupuncture treatment?- You are likely to feel relaxed and calm. HeartLight's acupuncture is followed by therapeutic relaxation therapy that deepens the healing. If the treatment has been particularly strong, you may feel drowsy. A treatment generally takes 60 minutes and provides immediate relief of pain and other health issues.
