Does Acupuncture Hurt?
Usually not much. It’s unfortunate that tiny acupuncture pins keep many people from trying it. They are sterile, single-use, solid and about the thickness of a human hair so the insertion, if felt at all, is minimal. In contrast, a syringe is hollow so medicine can pass through and this creates pressure and pain. There is nothing, such as medication, in or on an acupuncture pin.
We May Refer You to Other Specialists
Also, there are instances where we don’t feel like we can make a difference in your condition or you need to see a specialist. It is always our goal to give you information, referrals or recommendations for other treatments or practitioners that may be able to help.
