What is acupuncture treatment in Windsor?

During an acupuncture session in Windsor, thin metallic needles are gently inserted into the skin at specific points on the body. These insertions vary in depth, with shallow ones (1-2 cm) and deeper ones for thicker tissues like the buttocks. Acupuncturists are extensively trained in human anatomy to locate these precise acupuncture points, often where nerves are closer to the surface.

Needles can be placed directly in the area of pain or in different locations to target nerves contributing to pain elsewhere. Most patients describe the sensation as a small prick when the needle is inserted. According to Dr. Todd & Dr. Sarah, insertions through tight muscles can feel mildly achy but should not be painful.

In a typical session, our Windsor acupuncture team inserts between 5 to 20 needles, which remain in place for 10-20 minutes. To enhance the effect, our team may apply electrical pulses to the needles or twist them manually. While some people notice improvement after their first session, others may need two or three sessions to see results. Each individual responds differently to treatment.

Side effects of Acupuncture Treatment

Acupuncture in Windsor is safe when performed by a trained and experienced practitioner. However, you may experience some minor side effects, such as occasional soreness, slight bruising, or minor bleeding at the needle insertion sites.

Before booking an acupuncture session, it’s important to discuss certain conditions with your provider, especially if you are pregnant, have a bleeding disorder, or use a pacemaker. Our Windsor acupuncture practitioners Dr. Todd & Dr. Sarah are highly trained to avoid critical areas like the lung fields and other vital organs, ensuring a safe and effective treatment.
