Does It Hurt?

A common misconception about acupuncture is that it hurts.  After all, the practioner puts NEEDLES in your body!  That must hurt, right?!

Actually, acupuncture is quite relaxing and should not be painful.  The needles are extremely thin, as small as a strand of hair.  Carefully inserted into your skin at key points, the needles may create a slight sense of pressure or tingling, but it’s not comparable at all to getting a shot.
After inserting the needles, the practitioner will typically leave the room for several minutes to allow the patient to relax. Take deep, slow breaths and enjoy being in the moment.
