What About The Needles?
A well trained Professionally qualified Acupuncturist uses very fine needles, with a fast, precise, light and gentle technique- meaning you should feel very little.
All needles are sterilised, single use, and disposed of at the end of every treatment session.
There are hundreds of Acupuncture points, everywhere , the most commonly used are on the forearms, legs and feet. Points are chosen based on diagnostic criteria. Needles are often left in place for 20-25 minutes, with patients drifting away - it's deeply relaxing. Tonification needle technique simply pops the needle into the point then straight out again.
