NEEDLE FREE ACUPUNCTURE
We have acupuncture treatments that do not use needles and are pain free.
That been said, in general our acupuncture is usually a pleasant experience.
Acupuncture stimulates specific points along these pathways using thin, solid metal needles to penetrate the skin. Acupuncture needles have a round edge so they don’t cut the skin. Stimulating these places on the body influences your nerves, muscles, and connective tissue.
Acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain since it’s thought to boost the body’s natural painkillers. It’s now also used to promote overall wellness and to reduce stress.
One misconception about acupuncture is that it hurts, and this is a reason that some people don’t want to try acupuncture. The treatment isn’t meant to hurt, though you may experience some sensations during your treatment.
While the experience will be different for everyone, acupuncture usually doesn’t cause discomfort or pain.
Often you won’t feel the needles being inserted, because they are thin and gently inserted.
That been said in Springdale Health Integrative Clinic we can treat you without needles.
