Even though many more people are aware of the benefits of acupuncture, there are still many people out there who resist it, even when they are suffering from conditions it could help. Most of the people who know what acupuncture is and still resist it may believe that being stuck with acupuncture needles hurts.

Acupuncture needles are so small and fine that they cause only a faint feeling of your skin being touched at all. Caron Chiropractic Clinic, PA, of St. Paul, MN specializes in acupuncture, and can answer your questions about this form of therapy and explain the many benefits of using it.

Acupuncture has stood the test of time, which is why it is still offered and is arguably more popular and effective than ever.
