Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the placement of extremely fine needles into specific points on the body to alleviate certain health conditions or to strengthen and maintain an already healthy, well balanced body.  The insertion of the acupuncture needles is virtually painless.  Overall, most people don’t  feel them.  Others describe it as a small ‘zing’ that quickly dissipates.  However, there is what is referred to as ‘needling sensation’.  This can be experienced as tingling, heaviness, slight numbness or a dull ache in or around the area.  These sensations are normal and can be indicative of the unblockage of qi, a Chinese medical term pronounced “chee.”  When there is free-flow of qi there is less ‘dis-ease’ in the body.

At Ardent Acupuncture we value the well being and comfort of our patients.  We use the highest quality of pre-sterilized, single use, disposable acupuncture needles to help ensure a positive and relaxing experience.
