Life Wellness Center in Santa Fe offers Acupuncture treatments to patients. One of the great advantages of acupuncture is that it has virtually no negative side effects. As the energy in the body is adjusted and the natural chemicals and hormones are released, healing begins to take place. During an acupuncture treatment, you may feel a deep, dull pressure or surging sensation after the needle has been placed. This is called a Qi sensation (pronounced “chee”). With certain points, this indicates that the correct point has been located and that the body’s energy has been reached.
Acupuncture treatment consists of carefully inserting hair-thin, disposable needles into the skin. Because the needles are thin, the sensation is generally quite mild. In fact, nearly all patients experience a significant level of relaxation and may even fall asleep during treatment. Following an acupuncture treatment, many patients feel a heightened sense of well-being which may last for several days.
Most patients feel very relaxed during and after an acupuncture treatment. You may also notice changes in your sleep patterns, digestion, menstrual cycle and emotional attitude. These are all normal and positive side benefits of treatment.
