A modern day Acupuncture license gives a practitioner the capability to use needles as a treating method. Every Acupuncture school teaches about qi (energy) and how it affects the body through an Eastern medicine perspective. Interest is rising within the Western medical approach to using acupuncture needles with successful treatments of pain, inflammation, and other physical body symptoms like fatigue, depression, and other emotional symptoms. This Eastern/Western yin/yang approach to medicine allows for treatment of body and mind using needles.
The most frequent question about Acupuncture is: “Do the needles hurt?” The answer is that it depends on a number of factors: the location of the body, the needle, the technique of the acupuncturist. Overall, the feeling of an acupuncture needle going into the body is more of a “pinch” than a “stab.” Acupuncture needles are very fine filaments about the size of a human hair.
If you’ve ever been to a previous acupuncturist and had a hurtful experience, it doesn’t mean you will react the same with other acupuncturists. Every practitioner has their own style and technique.
