Does acupuncture hurt?

Occasionally a person may feel a pinch, but not usually. Different people have different sensitivities depending on their physical or emotional state. If you are feeling especially sensitive or emotional on the day of your treatment, be sure to let the doctor know, so those areas can be avoided. If there is discomfort after a needle is inserted, it is immediately removed. Acupuncturists generally offer a gentler approach to healing than conventional western practitioners, which is why so many people seek relief through acupuncture. Also, there will be differences between Traditional Chinese Medicine and Classical Five Element Acupuncture.
