What does acupuncture feel like? 

Many people do not even notice when the fine needles are inserted. Others may feel a small pinch, tingling, numbness or warmth. Some prefer acupressure which we also offer. During treatment, clients relax (often nap) and afterwards notice relief of symptoms or feel more energetic.
