Does acupuncture hurt?
We use very fine needles and while you may experience a brief prick when the needle is first inserted, once the needles are in you should not experience any pain. You may feel a dull ache while the needles are on particular points in your body.
People do not use the word ‘pain’ to describe this sensation. Acupuncture treatment should be calming and relaxing. It is essential that you let us know if you are uncomfortable.
