HOW DEEP DOES THE NEEDLES GO?

Most of the needle tips are located at the muscles or subcutaneous tissues. The depth of the insertion varies upon the nature of the illness treated, the location of the acupoints selected, the patient's size, age and constitution, as well as upon the acupuncturist's style or school. Usually, needles re inserted at depths ranging from ¼ to 1 ½ inch.
