For how long are the Needles Inserted?

This depends on the effect required and your individual diagnosis. On some occasions the needles are left in place for about 20 Minutes, other times for only a few seconds. Needles are also inserted bi-laterally so if a point is chosen on your hand then both hands will be needled.

Before the needles are inserted we always make sure that you are in a comfortable position. The Wolverhampton clinic has an adjustable treatment couch and we often support your arms and legs with towels and blankets.
