What is Acupuncture Treatment?

Acupuncture  is known to reduce pain, reduce swelling, and help to improve blood circulation. Acupuncture assists the body to heal naturally, without requiring surgeries and other invasive procedures. Acupuncture is also known for improving the homeostasis of the body. 

Is Acupuncture Treatment Painful?

Acupuncture bears no resemblance to the feeling of receiving an injection. Acupuncture needles are very fine and flexible, about the diameter of a human hair. In most cases, insertion by a skilled acupuncturist is almost painless. Most patients find the treatments very relaxing and calming.

You will not feel any pain with the overall acupuncture treatment. You may feel a prick when the needles pass through your skin, but some people do not experience any pain at all.

Is it Necessary for Needles to be Placed All Over my Body?

That answer will vary from patient to patient. In order for this procedure to be effective, the needles must be placed near the area that is being treated. The nerves that supply that area must be targeted during acupuncture treatment. The strategy used for acupuncture is complex, but it is also very necessary.

Are Acupuncture Needles Safe?

Yes, the needles used at Alpha Physiotherapy & Rehab acupuncture clinic are safe. We ensure that all of our needles used are pre-sterilized, disposable, and come individually packaged. This procedure is customized according to your age, size and the area that needs treatment; regardless of the specific treatment, it is one of the safest procedures to have done.
