Fine needles are inserted through the skin and left in position. The length of time a needle will be left in place may vary from a very brief period up to about twenty minutes. I never leave you in the room alone with needles inserted.
I make a decision on the number of needles you need at each consultation. Sometimes only two or three are used, on other occasions I use more.
Some people can't feel the needles at all. Others report a sharp sensation, burning or a dull ache. If this happens I may be able to re-position the needle.
