What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture heals by balancing energy within the body. Don’t let the idea of needles put you off—most patients barely feel a thing as the hair-thin needles go in. At River Stone Massage our acupuncturist is licensed and board certified. The needles used are hair-thin and are designed not to tear the skin. They are inserted gently and shallowly and the experience of having acupuncture is in no way like having an injection.
While each person experiences acupuncture differently, most people feel only a minimal amount of sensation as the needles are inserted. Once the needles are in most of our patients tell us that they experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being that lasts for many hours after the treatment.
