According to traditional philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy known as Qi (Chee) – moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of channels beneath the skin. By inserting fine needles into the channels of energy, an acupuncturist can stimulate the body’s own healing response and help restore the equilibrium between the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual.
Most people’s experience of needles is of those used in injections and blood tests. Acupuncture needles bear little resemblance to these. They are much finer, and solid rather than hollow. When the needle is inserted the sensation is often described as a tingling, or dull sensation.
