Acupuncture can be viewed as a highly precise and focused form of internal massage facilitated by very fine needles. As such I commonly use acupuncture within the context of a Chinese massage to address very specific difficulties you are having.
Treatment with acupuncture involves a consultation followed by the insertion of very fine needles into the body with the aim of generating specific sensations to facilitate recovery. The types of sensations people feel upon being needled can include relaxation, tingling, warmth, coolness, pulsing, heaviness, lightness or discomfort; these sensations can all be experienced in a range from subtle to intense.
Usually either during or after needles have been inserted patients settle into a state of deep relaxation and remain in this state for the rest of a treatment. Even if the nature of the work required is intense, you will always leave an acupuncture treatment feeling calm and relaxed.
