FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does acupuncture hurt?
In short, no. Acupuncture needles are extremely small and as fine as a hair. Acupuncture needles are solid, sterile, single use and completely different than a hypodermic needle. It is common to feel nothing, but at times there can be a mild, pinching sensation upon insertion of the needle. A dull ache is often felt after insertion, which is the Qi activating in the area of your body where the needle was inserted. For the most part, during an acupuncture session, and especially after the needles have been withdrawn, patients feel very relaxed.
Acupuncture has an accumulative effect. One treatment builds upon the last. Oftentimes a series of treatments are necessary to deal with complex diseases, while simpler conditions are easily resolved in one treatment.
