Does it hurt?
If you take one strand of hair from your head and pluck it out there is a short lived ‘ouch!’ sensation. Acupuncture is just like that. You feel it as the fine needle enters your body and then, while the needles remain in place for about twenty minutes or so, you don’t feel it again after that initial entry.
What if I really hate needles?
Because so many people in the West have phobias about needles that often stem from a childhood trauma, acupuncturists have worked with scientists to develop ways of using the same principles without the necessity of inserting needles.
How do I book an appointment?
Acupuncture is available to members following an initial consultation with Jemma Pask, our Member Support Officer. Get started here.
