It’s natural to assume that getting stuck with needles is going to hurt, but to the astonishment of many happy clients, acupuncture is actually quite painless. This doesn’t mean you’ll feel nothing, but if you’re wondering will acupuncture hurt? Not so much. Our wellness experts share more on this ancient healing technique and what you can expect.
While a feeling of sharpness from an acupuncture needle can happen, for the most part, acupuncture should be a comfortable experience. What you may feel is a kind of sensation at the site of the needling. It is at this point, when a person literally feels an acupuncture point working, de qi occurs. This is when the acupuncture needle has assessed the energetic material that it will move through the body.
At Driven Fit + Sponaugle Wellness Center, our experienced acupuncturist will explain the process prior to your treatment and will want you to speak up about any discomfort or pain. If you do feel sharpness beyond the level of a mild mosquito bite, the acupuncturist will try needling the point again or may simply remove the needle if the area has become too sensitive.
