Not really. Most of our patients find the experience very relaxing and are able to fall asleep soon after the insertion of the needles. We use sterile, single-use, disposable needles. These needles are very different from those used in other medical settings for injections and lab work. They are very fine and have a hair-like appearance. After the initial poke, most people describe the feeling as heavy, tingly, electric or nothing at all.
Wait, There Are Needles?!! Does it Hurt?
