What does acupuncture feel like?

Fear of needles is not uncommon and it's normal to be a little unsure at first!  Most of us have only experienced hypodermic needles through blood draws and injections - which are uncomfortable experiences.  The sensation you feel from an acupuncture needle is nothing like the feeling you get with a shot.  Our acupuncturists are skilled at using gentle techniques – listening to any concerns you may have and working within your comfort zone.  Our office is a great place to try acupuncture for the first time!

  • Acupuncture needles are sterile and single use
  • Acupuncture needles are extremely fine - about the width of a human hair.
  • Most people report either not feeling the needles at all, or noticing them briefly as they are inserted.  Some points may have more sensation than others, a deep dull heavy sensation or a quick little pinch may be noticeable.
