Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are inserted into the body.
There has been an increase in acupuncture research particularly in the area of Pain Management and in the field of Oncology in the past twenty years. This trend is reflected in the number of acupuncture research articles published on PubMed . From 1987–2007, PubMed published 8,276 articles that were related to acupuncture.
If the needles are inserted correctly and in the right place, most people will feel a sense of heaviness or a dull ache and thus is interpreted as pain. As a practitioner, I will explain to my patients what to feel and therefore they know what to expect and the anxiety around potentially feeling pain is eased. Acupuncture is known to be very relaxing. The needles are very thin and should only sting slightly. If any discomfort is experienced in the beginning, it fades away quite quickly and leaves you feeling quite calm.
