Acupuncture needles usually do not hurt. In fact, most people barely feel anything when needles are inserted due to their small size. There are certain sensations associated with the therapeutic effects of acupuncture. These may include slight cramping, heaviness, distention, tingling or electric sensation traveling along a specific pathway. If any discomfort is experienced, it is usually mild and temporary. The number of treatments may vary depending on how long the condition has been present. Many conditions respond faster to frequent acupuncture treatments. Once your condition is stabilized, you won’t need to come in as frequently. When you come in for your first treatment, we will develop a specific treatment plan for you.
