Legal & Testimonial Disclaimer: Individual results may vary to Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment. Testimonials are not claimed to represent typical results and are not intended to represent or guarantee that anyone will achieve the same or similar results. Every person is unique, thus, the experiences that I share from other people may not reflect the typical patient experience.

You should not begin any treatment program if you have medical condition that precludes acupuncture or changes to nutritional or exercise habits.

Challen Yee, is a Licensed Acupuncturist who provides guidance and treatment within the legal scope of practice as regulated by the California State Board of Acupuncture. My advice or opinion is not a substitute for medical advice from a physician, and I do not diagnose medical conditions. Please consult a physician before beginning any health therapy program.


There are sensations associated with effective acupuncture and you need to differentiate the sensation of a treatment with the pain of an injury.

While it is not painful, it is not sensation-less.

In general they are not the same, the sensation of painful injury compared to the sensation of Acupuncture.

It can help to begin your experience with a single needle to establish a common vocabulary between you and your Acupuncturist. Depending on which step of the treatment you are in, you will be able to feel the small and most often insignificant sensation of insertion, the arrival of energy once at therapeutic depth, the varying intensity associated with manipulation by fingers or by electro-stimulation and then the feeling of removal which can also be insignificant.

A basic overview of the typical sensations may be described as dull, numb, or heavy feeling in the local tissue area, sometimes extending along the appendage. The sensation can start small and build and sometimes it arrives in a rush.

Have yourself some fun!

Thanks for reading!
