Wait, There Are Needles?!! Does it Hurt?

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.
