Does Acupuncture Hurt?

 

No. A very gentle needling technique is used. The sensation experienced from an acupuncture needle is nothing like that of a hypodermic needle. In fact, acupuncture needles are 1/10 the thickness of a hypodermic needle. These tiny instruments are individually packaged at the manufactures and, of course, completely sterile. Used only once, they are discarded after each treatment.

 

 

How Long Is A Treatment?

 

An acupuncture treatment will last between 30-60 minutes, depending on the type of treatment.

Cosmetic and Cellulite Acupuncture treatments are 60 minutes per session.
