This is the most common question asked about acupuncture because many people associate needles with pain. Acupuncture needles are about the thickness of a dog’s whisker, so they are virtually painless when inserted.
This depends on the condition being treated. Although the acupoints are located throughout the entire body, usually the needles are placed on the extremities from your elbows down to your hands, and from your knees down to your feet. Other common areas include the abdomen, back, and ears.
Since I became aware of Chinese Medicine in 1986, I have been in love with it. My first experience with it was at a Chinese run hospital in Northern Benin, Africa. I was a Peace Corps volunteer working on a few community-service projects. I met the hospital interpreter at a local table tennis match between the Chinese hospital workers and the staff at the German version of USAID. They were all really good players. Meeting them encouraged me to see what they were up to at the Chinese hospital. I was having some intestinal trouble and so I stopped into the hospital to see what they could do. The pharmacist gave me some herbal pills to take and to my delight they really helped. That day changed my life forever.

“Acupuncture has been a lifesaving experience for me. I am happy with my services. My entire inner and outer self, changed for the better. I could not have healed so quickly. Even now I can walk barefoot without shame. I shine on the inside out. My experience is everyone should try this. Tess is a wonder…great listener. Pleasant environment.”
“I am very happy with my treatments at O.W.C.A., I cannot express enough how glad I am that I started going there. It’s the only pain relief that I have gotten in the past year, after going to several different doctors, physical therapy, ESWT treatments, none of which worked. The only thing that has worked for me is acupuncture. I was misdiagnosed by doctors, but Tess correctly diagnosed my problem, and she has been the only one that has given me pain relief.
Tess is such a sweetheart, she is so kind and caring as well as the receptionists. Everyone is so attentive, they make you feel so comfortable. The place is super clean and pretty, and the atmosphere very relaxing, I just love going there, I look forward to it every week. So thankful for this place!”
“Tess was recommended to me by a friend of my daughter. Having suffered with fibromyalgia for over 30 years. This involved chronic muscle, nerve pain and cognitive issues. Now I can say I no longer have these issues. Acupuncture gave me back my life, and at age 71 I need all the help I can get to stay healthy and active. For those of you having trouble deciding whether to try this fabulous modality, do it. Tess…is a treasure.”
“I started acupuncture treatments with Tess in May of 2014. I initially came for depression, anxiety and a painful knee. I have much improvement in all areas. I realized I came for pain relief and I stayed for the deep relaxation I receive from the treatments.
The environment at One World Community Acupuncture is nurturing, healing and relaxing. Tess truly cares about all her clients and you can see that in the way she interacts each and every one of them.”
“I began seeing Tess Bois September, 2014 for a number of skin, lung and stress conditions. I was initially hesitant, having never participated in a group setting. I was made immediately comfortable by the warm, fun and compassionate staff. I met Tess and after my initial treatment, I knew I was in the hands of a loving, knowledgeable, expert healer. Since my firt visit, I have seen Tess for shingles, colds, anxiety and weight loss. She has provided treatment with acupuncture and given referrals other health care and meditation centers along…with a really great joke with I needed it. I highly recommend Tess and her clinic. She is affordable, available, passionate, extremely competent and I feel secure knowing that I have this awesome amazing professional I can rely on in my health care team. She and her staff go above and beyond to provide …my conditions have all resolved…”
“Since my own experience went so well I have recommended Tess to family and friends and all have had similar positive experiences, including an aunt of mine who has been battling liver and lung cancer for years. I am and will always be extremely grateful to Tess for the relief that she has provided to myself and so many others.”
