Does Acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture needles are very different from the needles you usually see in your doctor’s office. The needles are very fine, barely beyond the thickness of human hair. The finest quality stainless steel, pre-sterilized, disposable needles are used. Most insertions are just beneath the skin’s surface and the sensations vary from person to person. You may feel nothing at all or perhaps a dull, momentary ache or tingling, which almost immediately recedes. Most patients find the treatments very relaxing and many fall asleep during the treatment. If you are particularly needle phobic or sensitive to pain we can work with you; our goal is to eliminate your pain and restore your balance.
