Where On The Body Do The Acupuncture Needles Go?
Acupuncture points cover the whole body, from head to foot and number over 400. Only a handful of these acupuncture points will be selected for stimulation during an acupuncture treatment.
The acupuncture points selected for stimulation will vary from acupuncturist to acupuncturist. I tend to use points on the head, abdomen, hands and lower legs as well as the problem area itself.
I use a variety of techniques taught by different masters of acupuncture, utilising various theories and techniques for each individual, giving people a tailor-made acupuncture treatment.
Some acupuncturists like to strongly stimulate the acupuncture needle to get a strong response from the acupuncture point. I don't do this as many people find it uncomfortable. Instead, I use a gentle stimulation with ultra-fine acupuncture needles to make it as pleasant and as relaxing as possible.
