Does acupuncture hurt?

Many first-time patients are concerned that acupuncture needles will feel like hypodermic injections at the doctor’s office. They won't. Acupuncture uses hair-thin, flexible needles that you will hardly feel when inserted .

Bernice's post graduate training in the gentler needling styles of Japanese acupuncture are well tolerated by sensitive patients, however stronger TCM needle techniques or dry needling can be incorporated within an acupuncture session, if needed. Sometimes gentle stimulation of the needles   may produce a unique sensation that Oriental medicine calls de qi. Patients often describe de qi as a heavy, achy pressure, or spreading, traveling feeling. You may also feel an "electrical" sensation moving down the meridian pathways, though this is less common. Most patients find these acupuncture sensations deeply satisfying and leave the treatment feeling relaxed both mentally and physically.

Acupuncture treatment creates deep relaxation
in both mind and body.
