What does acupuncture feel like?

This varies from patient to patient and practitioner to practitioner. Some people experience a light pinching feeling, some feel a tingling sensation, some a dull feeling and others feel a warm sensation, when the acupuncture needle goes in. Many first time patients are concerned with being poked by needles. The fact is, acupuncture needles aren’t much thicker than a strand of hair. The medical sizing for acupuncture needles vary between 32-38 gauge.

Interesting fact: You can fit up to 40 acupuncture needles can into the tip of one standard hypodermic needle.

The great majority of our first time patients are surprised at how painless acupuncture is. Some points on the hands and feet can be a little more sensitive. Most patients feel extremely relaxed, balanced and even euphoric after an acupuncture session.
