what happens during acupuncture treatments?
Acupuncture needles are inserted to various depths at strategic points on your body. The needles are very thin, so insertion usually causes little discomfort. People often don’t feel them inserted at all. Between five and 20 needles are used in a typical treatment. You may feel a mild aching sensation when a needle reaches the correct depth.
Dr. Denise may gently move or twirl the needles after placement or apply heat or mild electrical pulses to the needles.
In most cases, the needles remain in place for 10 to 30 minutes while you lie still and relax. There is usually no discomfort when the needles are removed.
