Acupuncture needles are very small in size commonly compared to a strand of hair. The needles are solid not hollow. They are rounded not pointed which help you feel comfort with the injections. If you feel the insertion, you may experience one of two things (you may feel a small like mosquito bite) then the energy from the tip of the needle. You may also feel a warm electric sensation throughout your body. If you feel any discomfort at all it will easily fade.

Acupuncture uses tiny needles to awaken different points in your body, stimulating it to produce natural steroids and release endorphins. Your natural steroids decrease inflammation, while endorphins inhibit pain. All this is natural and without side effects, unlike pharmaceuticals. Not only does acupuncture reduce pain, but it also facilitates genuine healing at the site of the trauma.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Electro-acupuncture therapy is a technique that is done by inserting the acupuncture needles in the scalp and then connecting the electro-machine to stimulate the point. Use electro-stimulation instead of hand stimulation to treat disease. The electro-machine can perform fast rotation, stabilize the treatment, and control the stimulation. Select two or more points at the time of stimulation. The current level should be chosen based on the amount the patient can handle. Usually choose a small amount of current to stimulate the point for 1 to 2 minutes, and once the patient becomes accustomed to the stimulation, increase the current. Treatment time for electro-acupuncture therapy should be 10 to 20 minutes. Use electro-acupuncture for conditions such as headache, dizziness, tinnitus, deafness, seizures, chorea, facial spasm, hysteria, stroke, or aphasia.
Ear acupuncture is a type of acupuncture that involves inserting needles into specific points on the ear. Stimulating these points is thought to promote healing in other areas of the body. Also referred to as auricular therapy or auriculo-acupuncture, ear acupuncture is often incorporated into standard acupuncture treatments.

Acupuncturists understand the mechanism behind gua sha through East Asian medical theories like the San Jiao system and the cou li -- but, I’m guessing you don’t speak East Asian Medical theory. So, let’s turn to the language of modern science, which finally can explain to the Western scientific mind the mechanisms behind many traditional medicine techniques that practitioners have been describing and documenting for millennia.
Herbal medicine is part of a larger healing system. Herbs are prescribed to restore energy balance to the opposing forces of energy – Yin and Yang – that run through invisible channels in the body. Herbal medicine, also known as herbalism or botanical medicine, is a medical system based on the use of plants or plant extracts that may be eaten or applied to the skin. Since ancient times, herbal medicine has been used by many different cultures throughout the world to treat illness and to assist bodily functions.
