Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Most people are pleasantly surprised to find that the insertion of the needles goes unnoticed. For others it feels like a small pinch followed by a variety of sensations. Often the first sensation is immediate relief from the pain they came in. Others experience tingling, warmth or a sensation of heaviness or a sensation of Qi or energy moving up and down the channels. I take great care to ensure that my patients are comfortable during treatment. Most people find acupuncture extremely relaxing and many of my patients fall asleep during treatment. Following treatment patients usually feel a profound sense of well – being , calmness or euphoria.
