San Francisco Acupuncture Treatment

Archives

Acupuncture is a popular method utilized today by licensed acupuncturists to help patients who are experiencing a wide range of issues from headaches, neck and back aches, tension, stress, and various neurological and musculoskeletal disorders receive permanent or temporary relief of their ailments. While most people would cringe at the idea of have needles inserted all over their body, the needles used in acupuncture are altogether unlike the needles people mostly think of from getting shots or having blood drawn. Acupuncture needles are thinner, lighter, with a finer point and they only go skin deep. While the experience of acupuncture varies from patient to patient, most feel little to no pain while the needles are being inserted, and none after they are in place. Along with the needles, occasionally heat or electrical stimulation may be used at precise acupuncture points to complete the treatment.
