Acupuncture treatment session takes about 30 minutes. Disposable acupuncture needles are used for the treatment, and they are discarded after being used. Acupuncture needles are very fine needles to minimize discomfort of the patient. Usually patients do not feel pain during acupuncture. In fact, many people feel relax when they receive acupuncture treatment. Generally, a series of treatment sessions is recommended to see the effects. However, you may see the benefit from the treatment right away after you receive the first session.
Acupuncture treatment is not only for pain control, but also for many medical conditions. If you would like to know whether your condition is suitable for acupuncture or not, consult with a healthcare profession who provides acupuncture service.
