Unsurprisingly, this is the most common question asked by patients when needles are used! Our therapists are trained to maintain the strictest hygiene levels and will only use pre-sterilised, disposable needles.
When inserted the fine needles give rise to a sensation which should only be a temporary mild discomfort at the most.
At times a more intense sensation is experienced. This is thought to be a positive indicator of the movement of energy at the acupuncture point, and is nothing to worry about.
