Acupuncture Needles

Acupunture needles are made from stainless steel wire. Your acupuncturist should discard all used needles and attend to each patient with a new set. The skin into which these needles will be inserted must be sterilised, usually with alcohol, before the needles are inserted.

Acupuncture needles are of differing length and thickness, the length varies from 13mm to 130mm while the thickness measures between 0.16mm and 0.46mm.The size of needle used is determined by where the needle is to be inserted, for example the shorter needles will be used near the face and eyes and the longer needles will be used on the more fleshy parts of the body. The needle points tend to be very sharp.

Acupuncture and assisting with health

A Modern life brings with it the unavoidable accompaniment of stress, which can be triggered or elevated by any number of things present in our day to day lives.

These stressors activate our fight or flight responses, which do not interpret well into most modern situations, causing us to contain our urges to fight or to flee. What we are left with when the situation resolves itself or the perceived threat dissipates, is a residue which builds up with constant exposure to stressful situation. This residue blocks the flow of Qi along the body's meridians and manifests itself in any manner ways such as fatigue, digestive problems, headaches and even depression.

Accupuncture should not be painful, if you feel uncomfortable or are unsure about whether the person performing the accupuncture is a trained professional, leave and rather make an appointment at a reputable practitioner. performed by a professional. If you feel uncomfortable, leave as soon as possible. Try and find someone who you can trust and know is qualified.

Acupuncture is one of the few therapies that works!!!
