Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Acupuncture needles are very thin and flexible and most people find the insertion almost painless. Once the needles are in place in the body, there may be a sensation around the needle – usually one of heaviness, achiness, warmth or tingling. Most people find that the body goes into a very relaxed and balanced state. It is very common for people to fall sound asleep during the treatment.
