Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is also being used for overall wellness, including stress management. Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force â€” known as chi or qi â€” believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will rebalance.
What can I expect during the treatment?
According to traditional Chinese medical theory, acupuncture points are located on the body's meridians, through which vital energy runs. This energy is known as "qi" or "chi." A ZAZEN acupuncturist will examine and assess your condition before inserting thin, sterile needles into your acu-points. As each needle is inserted, you may feel a very brief stinging or tingling sensation.
What are the results?
Although needles are used in acupuncture, treatments are relatively pain-free. One of the most popular uses of acupuncture is to reduce chronic pain throughout the body in a natural way, without the need for medications that can cause unwanted side effects.
Is it safe?
Acupuncture is safe and should only be administered by a licensed practitioner. After the needle is inserted, there is occasionally a dull ache at the base of the needle that quickly subsides.
