Does Acupuncture hurt?

As each needle is inserted, the patient may feel a very brief stinging or tingling sensation. After the needle is inserted, there is occasionally a dull ache at the base of the needle that then subsides. Acupuncture is usually relatively painless, but the feeling varies individually.

Let's hear what people who had acupuncture said about it.

"You may feel a slight prick when the acupuncturist puts the needle in, but it's much less than the prick you feel during a shot."

"Unlike normal needle, the acupuncture needles are extremely thin, and I don't feel any pain."

Is acupuncture safe?

With the advent of the sterile and disposable acupuncture needles, acupuncture has become an extremely safe treatment modality. Acupuncture generally considered safe when done by a trained professional. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates acupuncture needles and restricts their use to licensed practitioners.

What to expect during a session?

An acupuncturist will examine the patient and assess their condition, insert one or more thin and sterile disposal needles,  and offer advice on self-care or other complementary therapies. 

1. Consultant and examination.
The examination includes looking, listening, asking, and feeling the pulse, which is four diagnostic methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Afterward, the acupuncturist will determine and explain a treatment plan.

2. Lie down, get ready.
The acupuncturist will tell the patient to lie down on their back, front, or side, depending on where each individual's condition is. The doctor will conduct a final check to see if patients have any questions before practice.

3. Insert the needles.
When practicing acupuncture, the acupuncturist will be very careful and concentrate on inserting needles to the right points. For that moment, the acupuncturist may not communicate with the patient.

The acupuncturist will use single-use, disposable, sterile needles. The patient may feel a very brief stinging or tingling sensation when acupuncturist places the needles. According to traditional Chinese medical theory, acupuncture points are placed on meridians, through which vital energy runs. This energy is known as "Qi" or "Chi". 

4. Take the needles out.
Taking needles out is quick and painless. Sometimes, taking needles out may cause a little bit of bleeding, acupuncturists will press clean, sterile cotton on the bleeding point, and the bleeding will stop right away.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed depends on the individual. A person with a chronic condition may need one to two treatments a week over several months. An acute problem typically improves after 1 to 12 sessions.

How long do needles stay in place?

The needles will remain in place for between 30 and 45 minutes.

How do I feel when needles stay?

There is occasionally a dull ache at the base of the needle that then subsides.

Do I need a referral from a medical doctor?

Not necessary.  Most PPO insurance plans have accepted acupuncture alone.

The history of acupuncture

The theory and practice of acupuncture originated in China. Around 6000 BCE, for acupuncture treatment, sharpened stones, and long sharp bones were used instead of needles.

Acupuncture was first introduced in the U.S. during the 1800s. Western medicine accepted acupuncture until the U.S. built contact with China in the 1970s.
