Acupuncture needles are thinner than a human hair (usually 0.10-0.2 mm), and insertion of the needles is usually painless.
You may feel a slight sensation when the needle is inserted, like a pinch or plucking a hair.
Once the needles are placed, patients report a variety of sensations, including tingling, deep pressure, achiness, heaviness, and sometimes nothing at all. These sensations that accompany needling are called "hibiki" in Japanese, and different styles of acupuncture bring about different sensations; however the clinical efficacy does not depend on the intensity or type of "hibiki", so do not be concerned if you feel something in one session, but not in another.
For the treatment, specific points on the body are stimulated using needles inserted into the skin while you lie comfortably on a padded treatment table. Most people feel no or minimal discomfort during needling. The needles may be pulled out right away or retained, typically for 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the practitioner's style.
Other treatment modalities involve merely placing, pressing or stroking needles or metal tools against the skin. Acupuncture for infants and young children usually uses these types of techniques.
Moxibustion (the burning of mugwort on or near the body), electroacupuncture, cupping and bodywork are often added to the treatment to maximize the effect of acupuncture.
When practiced by a licensed, trained acupuncturist, acupuncture is extremely safe.
In Japan, acupuncturists are licensed by the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare after passing an examination and graduating from an accredited technical school or college. No other health care providers except medical doctors are legally allowed to practice acupuncture and moxibustion in Japan.
Only sterile and disposable needles are used at our acupuncture service so there is no risk of infection.
If you have a pacemaker, have a tendency to bleed or bruise easily, or if you are a hemophiliac or pregnant, you need to notify your acupuncturist before receiving treatment.
