"Acupuncture involves the insertion of almost hair-thin needles into specific points on the body"s surface. Needles are sterile and single use only. Unlike hypodermic needles, acupuncture needles are solid. Acupuncture typically doesn"t hurt. You may, however, experience a variety of sensations with acupuncture. These sensations can include: tingling, warmth, a mild pressure and a feeling like water flowing through you. Many patients feel nothing but most find the experience very relaxing with noticeable benefits and lasting effects.

Much research has been done in the field to discover how placing needles in precise locations can have results elsewhere in the body.
