Acupuncture, based on thousands of years of experience, is structured around improving one’s “Qi” or energy. The Qi energy is located throughout the body just beneath the surface of the skin and can be stimulated by placing extremely fine needles in certain points on the body.
Acupuncture needles are approximately the size of a cat’s whisker and they are very flexible. The needles stay in about 15 to 25 minutes depending on the type of treatment you were receiving. Acupuncture needles are one-time use only and are sterile.
