what is acupuncture

Acupuncture has been around for millenia, but many people still aren’t sure what it’s all about. “What is Acupuncture?”, “Will it hurt?” and “What does it do?” are some common questions I get. I will be trying to answer all the common, and perhaps uncommon, questions people have about acupuncture on this page. This page will be an evolving one as I encounter new questions and try to answer them. Please check back periodically as I will be adding new material. Got a question I haven’t answered? Email me your question – I’m happy to answer.


This first section will be questions about the practice of acupuncture itself.
