Types of Acupuncture
While all acupuncture involves inserting needles into various places on your body, the different practices insert needles into separate places dependent upon which art your acupuncturist practices.

  • Korean acupuncture is perfect for those who are just starting out the treatments or for those who are leery of needles. Those who practice this art insert needles into your hands and fingers which works best on arthritis and chronic pain.
  • Japanese acupuncturists work with fewer and smaller needles. This is the precise artform and you will want to find the best professional you can. Surprisingly, people find this a very soothing procedure.
  • Chinese acupuncture is designed to allow the flow of your own body’s natural healing properties by inserting small needles into affected areas. There are many people who only believe in using Chinese acupuncture.
  • If you have a real fear of needles then Auricular acupuncture could be just right for you. The acupuncturist only places needles near your ears. This type of treatment has been found to be quite effective for those with drug and alcohol addictions.

At Greystones Health, they offer traditional Chinese acupuncture, and before you ask, many patients fall asleep during treatment so no, it doesn’t hurt.
