How long are the acupuncture needles left in for?

Acupuncture needles are left inserted in the body for between 20-60 minutes, depending upon the acupuncturist and the health problem being treated.

Acupuncture treatment has made a benefit to the body from 20 minutes onwards. Having the acupuncture needles left in longer can help if a person is feeling stressed or anxious. Most people like to spend between 30-45 minutes relaxing on the treatment couch with the acupuncture needles in.

If a person's energy is weak, it's best to have the acupuncture needles in for less time, around 20 minutes so as to not damage their energy.
