One of our most frequently asked questions is does acupuncture hurt?

To answer… It should not hurt if performed by an experienced registered practitioner. There are points that may be more sensitive than others upon insertion. Every so often, it can sting slightly when the needle is inserted. This is because of the location on the body of some points and what the surrounding anatomy is like.

After needle insertion it is common to feel:

  • Numb
  • Heavy
  • Relaxed

Acupuncture should be a relaxing experience and in a comfortable environment. For more frequently asked questions please click here
