Does it hurt?
Acupuncture needles are nearly hair-thin and their insertion typically involves minimal or no pain. You may not even be aware that the needles are there. Often people experience mild warmth, tingling, heaviness, or the sensation of Qi moving within the body. Most people find acupuncture extremely relaxing, and may even fall asleep during treatment.
