This can be a difficult question to answer from a general perspective. People’s experiences can vary from a deep sense of well-being and relaxation to the onset of a healing crisis which can be uncomfortable. Often people’s expectations of acupuncture can be quite high and sometimes people think it is a miracle cure. It is important for people to understand that everyone’s response is individual.
Acupuncture is a technique that involves the insertion of fine, disposable needles into specific points within the body. Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points within the body to stimulate the nervous system to produce chemicals and reactions in the body to promote wellbeing and good health. In the body energy called ‘Qi’ runs through the body in lines called meridians.
