Following insertion of the needles, patients usually experience only a sensation of pressure, followed sometimes by a slight tingling. In some cases, patients can actually feel the Qi flowing at or near the acupoint, and some even report feeling the free circulation of their Qi as it is restored.
The needles remain in place for anywhere from twenty minutes to nearly an hour; typically, the patient is simultaneously relaxed and invigorated, and it is as common to fall into a light sleep as it is to become energized. At the end of the treatment, the needles are removed, and in most cases there is no bleeding following treatment.
