Expert acupuncture in Twickenham, Richmond
2. How acupuncture works
Acupuncture works by regulating the body's flow of energy and bodily fluids such as blood flow and yin and yang in the body.
The acupuncture points are located across the whole body, from head to toe like the underground map criss-crossing the body. Each acupoint is like an underrgound station on the body and by stimulating that specific point, it initiates a healing response somewhere else in the body.
Scientific evidence suggests that it works by regulating neuromodulation, such as vagus nerve stimulation and has been used for inflammation control and uses body natural pain killers for pain treatment.

4. Is acupuncture painful?
Generally no, acupuncture isn't painful. The acupuncture pins I use are so fine, like the width of a hair. You can fit 20 acupuncture pins into one syringe! Other acupuncturists and physios use thicker pins, which you can feel more.
Some people may feel the acupuncture pins go in, but it's not painful, you just notice it, like a little prick and others you will feel nothing. Once the needle is in, you may feel a dull ache or a tingling sensation, which is normal.
