No. It’s Actually Very Relaxing

Most of our patients are shocked at how relaxed they feel after acupuncture.  The treatments cause an endorphin rush and most patients fall into a deep state of relaxation quieting the busy mind.  We affectionately call it the “acu-buzz.”

Acupuncture needles are extremely fine

flexible, and are about the diameter of a human hair. They are nothing like the hypodermic needles we remember as children and no medicine is forced into the muscle. Acupuncture needles are sterile, vacuum packaged, single-use and are disposed of after use. In almost all cases, insertion by a qualified practitioner is performed with a minimum of discomfort.
