All the acupuncturists at Posture Plus are certified, skilled and experienced in using acupuncture as a treatment modality. They are able to insert the needles in a manner which minimizes the pain. Most clients find acupuncture almost painless, as the needle is very fine and thin. Some people hardly feel the insertion of the needles at all but it does depend on the area of the body concerned and the sensitivity of the client and their condition. In some cases, clients who are very sensitive or have a phobia of needles may find acupuncture unpleasant. In these cases, it is strongly recommended that the client discuss their fears with their treating Physiotherapist before receiving acupuncture.
