Does acupuncture hurt?
No, acupuncture should not hurt. A momentary prick is often felt around the needle as it is inserted, eventually creating a dull pressure or tingling around the area during the treatment. Most people are amazed by how relaxed they feel during and after the treatment. This can only occur if the treatment is comfortable and gentle.

Is acupuncture safe?
As long as it is performed by a comptetent practitioner, acupuncture is extremely safe. Acupuncturists are required to use disposable needles that are discarded after one use.
