In the hands of a licensed practitioner acupuncture is a very sage, pain-free, effective treatment for many acute and chronic conditions that has been used for thousands of years.

Acupuncture treatments are not painful. Acupuncture is performed with hair-thin needles that do not resemble the pain felt form a hypodermic needle. Patients often fall asleep and are in deep relaxation on the table.

One benefit to acupuncture is that it is a drug-free way to optimize health. With drugs, people often develop a tolerance or the need for an increased dosage to achieve the same required effect. However, this does not happen with acupuncture.

Needles are usually left in place for 15-20 minutes. There is time needed to prepare for the treatment, so the appointment would usually take 30 minutes or slightly longer.

Dry needling is a form or acupuncture that can be quite effective for myofascial pain and muscle tightness. Special training is needed for this technique that involves placing the needles into a trigger point of a muscle, which is a point that is often tight and tender. This can release the muscle tension which reduce symptoms. Bruising can be a common occurrence with dry needling.
