At Embrace Acupuncture, your comfort and happiness are our greatest concern. Super fine, pain minimising needles are coupled with the gentlest techniques to leave you feeling calm and relaxed.
Some points are chosen close to the effected area (eg on the abdomen for digestive issues) and some are away from the area but along the channel (meridian).
Areas of the body that have thin skin and minimal overlying muscle (eg the hand) can be more sesnsitive than areas with more flesh/muscle (eg the back). Keeping this is mind we keep these points to a minimum and do only what is really needed for relief for the symptoms.
Once the needles have been gently inserted, any discomfort will fade quickly so you can lie back, relax and let the acupuncture do its work!
