Q: Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are thinner than a human hair (usually 0.12 – 0.2 mm), and insertion of the needles is usually painless.
You may feel a slight sensation when the needle is inserted, like a pinch or plucking a hair.
Once the needles are placed, patients report a variety of sensations, including tingling, deep pressure, achiness, heaviness, and sometimes nothing at all.
These sensations that accompany needling are called “Hibiki” in Japanese, and different styles of acupuncture bring about different sensations ;
however the clinical efficacy does not depend on the intensity or type of “Hibiki”, so do not be concerned if you feel something in one session, but not in another.
If you feel any pain or discomfort, let your acupuncturist know and he
or she will make the necessary adjustments.
It is very common for patients to feel relaxed and fall into a light sleep during the session.
Q: What is an acupuncture treatment like?
Though each acupuncturist has a unique
style, many of the procedures involved in treatment are similar.
First, your acupuncturist will ask about your health history or ask you to fill out a health history form.
This helps the acupuncturist understand the root of your health issues, so the treatment can address the underlying cause, not just the symptoms.
Some questions may seem unusual or irrelevant to your condition,
but they will help the acupuncturist understand your underlying constitution and determine a proper treatment plain.
Your acupuncturist the may perform physical examinations or palpate various parts of your body.
Your pulse, tongue and abdomen may also be examined, as these are traditional diagnostic techniques.
For the treatment, specific points on the body are stimulated using needles inserted into the skin while you lie comfortably on a padded treatment table.
Most people feel no or minimal discomfort during needling.
The needles may be pulled out right away or retained, typically for 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the practitioner’s style.
Other treatment modalities involve merely placing, pressing or stroking
needles or metal tools against the skin.
Acupuncture for infants and young children usually uses these types of techniques.
Moxibustion ( the burning of mugwort on or near the body ), electro-acupuncture, cupping and bodywork are often added to the treatment to maximize the effect of acupuncture.
