Superb acupuncture. I injured my lower back yesterday and couldn't even get out of bed without hurting myself. Walking upright was impossible; I was hobbling around in a half forward tilting stance because putting any pressure on the facet joints would hurt. The moment sifu placed the needles in, I knew I had found a master. I felt an immediate jolt of relief to my spasming back muscles, and the jolt went through to the corresponding opposite side of the part being treated. Sifu treated L2, L4, behind the knee, and several points on my legs and feet. I felt similar jolts on the left leg, which corresponds with compensation for the low back injury which was more severe on the right. After the session, I got off the treatment table without much pain, and I was walking upright! It was such a relief that I no longer had to waddle around like a duck. It's been 4-5 hours since the treatment, and while some of the pain has returned, I am still able to walk upright. Can't wait for my second session with sifu.

First time ever doing acupuncture but have always been very curious. Very pleasant experience and Dr. Joongwon was very thorough and informative. I learned a lot about how it works and how it benefits. With the first appointment after two minutes I went into a deep meditative state and felt the most clam and relaxed I’ve felt in months. Highly recommend!

Acupuncture Needles: Hair-Thin Instruments of Healing

Although many fear hospital needles, those used in acupuncture are much less scary. Check out Groupon’s examination of acupuncture needles to ease any lingering aichmophobia.

Acupuncture generally doesn’t draw blood—a testament to the skill of professional acupuncturists but also to the special needles they use. Unlike the needles commonly feared by hospital-goers, acupuncture needles are thin enough to slip through the skin without breaking any blood vessels. Although most are roughly the thickness of a hair or a pixie’s wand, they come in several varieties for different treatment types: thinner needles provide less stimulation and are often used for children or the elderly; shorter needles treat the head and face; and longer needles (up to 5 inches long) target the thighs and other fleshy areas to reach points along the body’s theoretical energy pathways, known as meridians.

Filiform needles are the most common, comprising a stainless-steel wire sharpened at one end and wrapped at the other to form a handle. With a quick, skilled hand—or the aid of an insertion tube—practitioners insert the tip just beneath the skin’s surface, and although a small prickle may be felt, once the needles are in, the patient shouldn’t feel them at all. Today, most acupuncturists use disposable needles due to their safety and simplicity, but some may use reusable steel or even gold needles, sterilizing them between use in the same way doctors or guitarists do their instruments.

The practice of acupuncture stretches back more than 5,000 years, well before stainless steel was a household commodity. Archaeologists have dug up traces of the implements early healers used to get energy, or chi, flowing properly through the body: sharpened stones were a popular choice, as were delicate needles of bone.
