Treatment on different conditions like upper and lower back pain, tennis elbow, shoulder pain, headaches, energy boosting for low energy levels, asthenia etc.
Acupuncture is a therapeutic practice that originated in China and entails stimulating particular points in the human body using very minute needles. It is based on the theory that there is chi, the energy that circulates in all living things, and whenever this energy is disturbed or blocked, illness and pain arise. Acupuncturists utilize small, solid, sharp and sterile needles to go through specific passageways (meridians) inside the body wherein chi flows to bring back harmony and good health of the patient.

During the procedure :
Acupuncture points are present all over the body. Sometimes the suitable points are situated far away from the area of pain. The practitioner will explain you the general site of the planned treatment and whether you need to change your clothing. You are asked to lie on a table for the treatment, which may involve:
Needle insertion : Small acupuncture needles are inserted at specific points in your body. The needles are very thin, so insertion causes little discomfort. Around 5 to 20 needles can be used in a typical treatment. You may feel a mild pain sensation when a needle reaches the correct depth.
Needle manipulation : Your practitioner may slowly move or twist the needles after placement.
Needle removal : Generally, the needles are left in the place for 10 to 20 minutes while you relax. There is usually no discomfort during needle removal.
