Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Acupuncture needles are typically not much thicker than a hair, and their insertion is practically painless. It is nothing like receiving an ordinary injection. In some cases, you will not even know that the needles are in place. In others, there may be tingling, warmth, heaviness, or even a feeling of the qi moving up and down the channels. Most people find acupuncture relaxing, and many fall asleep during treatment.
