I don’t require you to believe in Qi and Meridians –I love my work and it’s a pleasure to be able to share your thoughts or concerns.
Some people are discouraged from trying acupuncture because of the use of needles, however acupuncture needles are incredibly fine and the process shouldn’t be painful at all. Most people feel calm and relaxed during treatment, and many fall asleep. If you are unsure about needles then you are welcome to try a single needle during your consultation to see how it feels! For people who really don’t like needles at all, it may be possible to gain many of the benefits of acupuncture using light touch to the acupuncture points. This is called acupressure.
