What about needles? Do they hurt?
 Acupuncture needles are solid, slender, slightly thicker than the thickness of a human hair, and bear no resem­blance to hypodermic sy­ringes. I use the finest quality, stain­less steel, pre-steril­ized, disposable nee­dles.
Most insertions are made just beneath the skins sur­face, and sensations vary from person to person. Some­times a person feels nothing at all or perhaps a dull, momentary ache or tin­gling sensation. Only a few nee­dles are used, of­ten only two or three.
