• The sensation of Qi is different depending on the location of the needle and disposition of the patient
  • Acupuncture needles are NOT hypodermic needles (needles used to give shots). 
  • 10 acupuncture needles can fit into the hole of a hypodermic needle.
  • We only use sterilized disposable needles
  • The initial insertion of the needle may feel like a tiny prick, a pinch or nothing at all
  • Once the needle is in the body, the goal is to access the Qi so it can be manipulated
  • Qi sensation can be heavy, warm, dull, radiating, 'walking' slightly electrical
  • The experience should be comfortable.  Many patients fall asleep during their treatment.
