Acupuncture is a collective term for needling methods and moxibustion. Acupuncture needles are used to stimulate specific acupoints to achieve therapeutic effects.
You may experience slight discomfort upon insertion when the needle pierces through the skin; however, most people find it very tolerable. As the needle reaches acupoint, you may notice achiness, tingling, fullness, and heaviness, which are referred to as “needling sensations”. The duration varies greatly from person to person.
