Very thin sterile, disposable, stainless steel needles are inserted into specific points along the effected channels in order to disperse the blockage and mobilize the body's natural immune response. Usually insertion of the needles are painless. You may feel a dull ache, tingling or warm sensation when the needles are stimulated. Most people experience a very relaxing feeling of peace and well being during and after their treatment.
