Is there anything in acupuncture needles?

At River Oaks Wellness, we would tell you, “ABSOLUTELY NOT!”  All acupuncture needles are single-use and sterile; nothing is coated on the needle.  This is a common question because often times, as a needle is inserted, there is a deep, relaxing feeling that the body experiences.  This is simply acupuncture's way of signaling to your own body to produce its own naturally occurring endorphins.
