What You'll Feel Like When you Get Acupuncture

When you get acupuncture, you will feel tingly at first, and then deeply relaxed. Acupuncture has been proven to stimulate the release of endorphins; your body’s natural happy chemicals.  
As you continue your treatments, you won’t have as many aches and pains. Your breathing, circulation and digestion will improve; your mind will become calmer and more focused; your injuries will heal more quickly; you will have more energy during the day and sleep easier at night.  There are no chemicals involved aside from those produced by your own body.  Also, acupuncture stimulates your body to flush out toxins, which is important to staying healthy. There are no side effects to acupuncture, only side benefits. While you may come in looking to solve a specific problem, you will eventually notice that you are feeling better in other ways as well.  
Acupuncture is virtually painless and the experienced hands at Acupuncture Nirvana helps make the whole treatment pleasant. Acupuncture bears no resemblance to the feeling of receiving an injection since the main source of pain from injections is the larger diameter, hollow needle and the medication being forced into the tissue by pressure. Acupuncture needles are very fine and flexible, about the diameter of a thick hair. When a needle is inserted into a blocked meridian, the patient may feel a dull ache, heaviness, distention, tingling sensation either around the needle or traveling up or down the affected meridian. These sensations are the presence and movement of Qi. Most patients find the treatments very relaxing and many fall asleep during the treatments.
