Does Acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are very fine needles as nothing is being transferred through it (like when you give blood). It does not feel the same as getting a vaccine or giving blood. Some needles you may not feel at all, some you may feel slight sensations. We will go through what’s normal when we sit down together.
How often do I need to do it?
As least to start, you will likely have a treatment each week. Plan on doing 4 to 6 treatments before you decide if it’s right for you.
