Acupuncture is a powerful medical treatment, recognized by the World Health Organization for the treatment of over 40 common disorders.
At Mountain Spring Health Clinic we only us sterile, single-use needles which are often reported by patients to be relatively painless. After insertion the needles are commonly stimulated to entice the flow of Qi, at which point patients might feel a dull achy sensation which dissipates over time. Unfortunately, for most people the only introduction to needles they have is through the withdrawal of blood. Acupuncture needles are nothing like larger needles many patients are familiar with. Thus, due to their size most patients only feel a slight pinch upon insertion, and nothing more. Occasional minor bruising may occur.
Dr. Murczek has been actively practicing acupuncture since 1997. His gentle approach will guide you slowly through treatment sessions, starting or increasing needle usage only as you are ready.
