What should I expect to feel during the treatment?

At the point where the acupuncture needle is inserted you may experience a vague heavy sensation, tingling or dull ache. Sometimes people experience a sensation of energy spreading and moving around the needle. This is called the “Qi sensation.” All of these reactions are completely normal.

Everyone experiences acupuncture treatments differently. After the treatment you may have a feeling of sleepiness and deep sense of relaxation or you may feel energized with a sense of well-being. Either way, listen to your body and act accordingly.
