Acupuncture needles are much smaller and easier to take then most people imagine. There may be a slight pinching or sharp sensation upon insertion or there may be no sensation at all. Some needling requires the attainment of “needle reaction” to call the energy to the point. In this case you might feel heaviness, tingling, itching, mild aching, numbness or distension. We will always make your acupuncture session doable for you. Please feel free to give us feedback so we can make your experience as pleasant as possible.
