Dumb question: does it hurt?

I know that this shouldn't really matter as I'm willing to try anything even if it hurts. But, does acupuncture hurt?

I don't really like needles.


Usually no

I've had acupuncture a number of times and for the most part it doesn't hurt at all. The needles that were used are much smaller than the ones when you would receive an shot or when you give blood.

Sometimes you can get a bit of an achey feeling and once in a while a brief little sharp pain but nothing too bad.

My advice: Don't let fear of needles stop you!
