The flow of chee or Q1 will be stimulated by the acupuncture needle that circulates in meridians or channels within our body. Q1 will circulate through the deeper body organs along with connecting with our superficial skin. There exists a balance between these body systems in the case of normal healthy body’s.

If infection, emotional trauma, or injuries happen, then it will affect the natural flow of Q1. The stagnation or slowing of Q1 will result in longer debilitating diseases and exhaustion. Stimulating the relevant acupuncture points might help you avoid stagnation along with restoring the normal flow of Q1.

The needles used for acupuncture are hair thin, which means that they are very different from traditional needles. Only a few needles will be used on the patient during the initial stage of the treatment. That said, we might use additional needles as required based on the clinician’s discretion and patient’s symptoms. 

Each needle will be inserted into the skin of the patient at various points. This might be the areas where you are feeling pain or at distal points that ensure beneficial effects. A combination of both will be used in most cases. Acupuncture treatment sessions usually last for about 20 to 30 minutes. 

However, the optimal duration of the treatment will be decided by the physiotherapist. The needles will be gently removed from your body and disposed of at the end of the treatment.
