Min Can Help You With Much More Internal External Problems ............
A 40+ young man came to see Min for his Carpal tunnel syndrome over 10 years. He had a surgery 4yrs ago. It seems helping in the first 2 years but gradually worsening. He is now the whole left arm feeling tired, aches and difficult to handle daily work. His wrist not sore at all. He works in office every day. It doesn't look like the Carpal tunnel syndrom to me. Through the examilation, Min has found the pressure poits that relate to Motor nerve. With electric-acupuncture for 40minutes, his whole arm warm up. That is the sign of good blood circulation! No more aching when he finishes the treaatment.

Common Acupuncture Questions
Some questions that I get asked a lot are "does it hurt" or "what are the needles like"? So today, I'm at Exhale Spa in Boston, and I'm going to show you what an acupuncture treatment is really like.
Your First Consultation
Well usually, I start asking about your health concerns, your lifestyle and your well-being. According your complains, I will combining TCM diagnosis methods, check your tongue, your pulse, your complexion, your pain, your apperance, palpation and physical movements. I will then use those information to analysing and diagnosis in terms of TCM and make a treatment plain. We may start the treatmentand then. Herbal medicine and diet and lifestyle advises may suggested if relevant.
Most people are surprised to see how thin acupuncture needles really are. Look at how this one bends against my finger.Typically, 6 to 12 needles are used in a treatment. They're inserted into acupuncture points in the body, which are invisible lines of energy flow called meridians.
Does Acupuncture Hurt?
One of the most common things people are most interested in is whether acupuncture hurts. When the needle first goes in there's usually a slight pinch or no pain at all. They're typically inserted 2 mm and 1.5 cm into the body.And if you're afraid of needles, don't worry. Just tell your acupuncturist. There are many ways to get around this. Often the needle is manipulated until a mild sensation or tingling is felt in the area around the needle.
How Long Does Acupuncture Treatment Last?
Once the needles are in, you're usually allowed to rest for anywhere between 10 to 30 minutes. With some styles, needles only need to be left in for seconds.And if you have to move, let's say if your toe is itchy, just tell your acupuncturist. At the end of the treatment, the needles are removed. The needle is usually removed so quickly you hardly feel anything at all.
After Your Acupuncture Treatment
After the treatment, the most common feeling is being relaxed but some people feel energized. Take a few minutes to rest, drink some water or herbal tea, and you're ready to get on with your day.Thanks for watching. To learn about acupuncture, please visit us on the web at Altmedicine.About.com.
