Does it hurt?
While styles of acupuncture vary, we believe that good acupuncture shouldn’t be painful. In most cases only a slight prick can be felt when the needle penetrates the skin. When the needle reaches the pressure point, there is another sensation often described as a dull ache, or a numb, tingly feeling. This sensation lasts for a couple of seconds and is quite comfortable. Some patients don’t feel anything at all.
