how does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture uses small needles inserted at specific points to stimulate the body's natural healing abilities.These points are on energetic pathways called meridians that run through the entire body, including muscles, organs and tissues. By utilizing these points, acupuncture can address all sorts of complaints, whether they are of a physical, emotional, or spiritual nature.

does acupuncture hurt?

You may feel the needles being inserted, but that should be nothing more than a small pinch. Some people don't feel the needles going in at all. Acupuncture treatments are generally pretty relaxing, so if there's something that is keeping you from getting comfortable during treatment, just let your practitioner know.
