Acupuncture Treatment

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

People experience Acupuncture needling differently. Most patients feel no pain at all as the needles are inserted, some feel only very minimal pain. Once the needles are in place, there is no pain felt at all. Acupuncture needles are very thin and made from flexible stainless steel. The needle point is smooth (not hollow with cutting edges like a hypodermic needle) and insertion through the skin is not as painful as injections or blood sampling. There is rarely any risk of bruising and skin irritation.
