”Does acupuncture hurt?”

 Many people who never tried acupuncture might think..

 

 " Does acupuncture needle hurt?"

 

  Please, don't worry too much about the needle.

 

 Acupuncture needles feature single-use, sterilized, stainless

steel iterations, about as thin as cat’s hair.

Unlike Western-style hypodermic needles, which flare out

at the tip and cut the skinas they enter, acupuncture needles

gently separate the skin.

 While they may pinch, no, they generally don’t hurt.

"How does acupuncture work?"

In general, "acupuncture" is said to be good for releasing

muscular tension like stiff shoulder and lower back pain,

but acupuncture treatment is also effective for a wide range

of symptoms such as depression, insomnia, digestive issues,

hormonal imbalances, allergies, auto immune diseases so on.

 We sometimes have suppressed our own autoimmune

function due to various causes such as stress and overwork.

Because acupuncture has the effect of activating this

suppressed autoimmune function, it can restore the

unbalanced body and boost up immune power to treat

the symptoms.
