Will it hurt?
Acupuncture needles are super fine. In fact they can hardly be referred to as needles as they are more like a wisp of hair. On insertion, you may feel nothing, a slight fizz or a dull ache. Almost every patient comments on how relaxing the treatment is. The sterile needle is only used once and thrown away in a clinical waste container immediately afterwards.
For those who may be anxious about needles acupressure or exceptionally fine needles can been used.
