How deep do acupuncture needles go?
Q: How deep do acupuncture needles go?
A: Acupuncture points are located near or on the surface of the skin. Usually needles are inserted from 1/4 to 1 inch in depth. Depth of insertion will depend on nature of the condition being treated, the patientsâ€™ size, age, and constitution, and upon the acupuncturistsâ€™ style or school.
