When the acupuncture points are contacted, the energy or Chi moves. This is done with the use of very fine solid stainless steel needles. Needles are about as thin as a strand of hair. The acupuncture needle is a tool, that enables us to move through the surface of the skin, and contact the point to move the energy.
When the energy is contacted, there is a momentary sensation, which tells us the energy is moving. This is a good sign! How this feels can vary from person to person. Any sensation usually goes away within seconds.
Only pre-packaged, single-use pre-sterilized disposable needles are used.
