A Acupuncture treatments do not hurt. The acupuncture needles used by our acupuncturists are extra thin, acupuncture needles and we use gentle insertion methods. We use only sterilized, disposable acupuncture needles. The needles are extremely thin, and unlike a hypodermic needle, do not have a beveled, cutting edge and therefore, do not feel painful, like getting blood drawn. Some people report barely feeling the needle go in and once the needles are in, patients usually feel at ease and relaxed.
