Acupuncture involves the insertion of hair thin needles into specific tissue structures and areas on the body.  Acupuncture can be used in combination with other treatment techniques such as cupping, moxibustion (deep heat), various manual therapies, and lifestyle advice including corrective exercises, dietary advice, and herbal remedies.  

Needle Sensation:
When acupuncture needles are inserted usually there is little or no sensation, however your practitioner may manipulate the needle to elicit a tissue change or release.  There may be a distending, radiating sensation, or the feeling of a twitch as a tight and irritable band of muscle fibers release.  There are various techniques which are chosen depending on the needs and goals of the client.
