Does it (needling or acupuncture process) hurt?

People experience needling differently. Most feel no pain. Some experience minimal pain as the needles are inserted. The needles can be quickly adjusted in the unlikely event of you feeling uncomfortable during the needling process. (Please do not hesitate to tell us if you feel uncomfortable.

Some people experience a sensation like that of a mosquito bite that disappears very quickly. Often people describe their sensations as warming, heavy, numb or tingling. Be comfortable and relax while the needles are in place. The more you can relax during an acupuncture treatment, the better the results. Some people even fall asleep during the treatment.

Some people are energized by treatment, while others feel relaxed. Following the treatment it is very common for you to feel a tremendous sense of relaxation and calm.
