Does Acupuncture Hurt

The needles used in acupuncture are very thin - .20mm to .30mm. Sometimes a client will feel the needle enter the skin, like a bee sting or a pinch. Once the needle is in the body, the client generally feels no pain. If the client feels a sharp sensation the needle is either readjusted or removed altogether. We do however, want to have the client experience some kind of 'qi' sensation. This can be dull and achy, tingling or feeling like electricity, hot or cold sendations, or just 'strange.'



What is Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the fine art of inserting ultra fine needles into specific points on the body. These points lay along 14 meridians or channels that cover the entire body. There are 365 points associated with these meridians as well as many 'extraordinary' points. These points were mapped on the body thousands of years ago through qi gong, trial and error. History shows that manipulation of these points produces predictable results.



Pain Relief

Find relief from chronic or acute bodily pains with acupuncture. The World Health Organization indicates several diseases or disorders for which acupuncture therapy has been tested, in controlled clinical trials, and thus shown to treat these disorders effectively.



You can experience the benefits of ancient medicine – a medicine that has treated millions of people for over 2,000 years.  Tradition Chinese Medicine, which includes acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy, was developed to help people live healthy and balanced lives for as long as possible.  This medicine not only treats acute and chronic pain; it treats illnesses such as dizziness, headache, insomnia, indigestion, allergies and incontinence.  At Reed Acupuncture and Eastern Medicine, LLC, we strive to bring about feelings of balance and well-being as well as reducing pain and stress.
