Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture rarely ‘hurts’.   The most that some people experience is a dull ache around the base of the inserted needle, or a slight tingling feeling when the needle is inserted. Points at the extremities, such as toes or fingers, can sometimes be a little sharp, but the sensation is usually brief.

A client recently remarked that he was suprised at how painless acupuncture can be. Below is his experience at the clinic

“Leif’s technique is very gentle, so there’s no need to be worried about it being painful and after every session I have always felt a noticeable improvement in my body and mind”
