Acupuncture Awareness Week Myth 1 ‘Acupuncture is painful’

Posted on 7th March 2017 by

This week is acupuncture awareness week and so we’re dispelling some commonly held myths about this treatment technique.

Myth Acupuncture treatment is painful

Reality¬†Acupuncture isn’t always completely pain-free, but it’s not as bad as you might think! Acupuncture is less painful than having blood taken or an injection, as the needles are so fine. You may feel a tiny ‘sting’ as the needle goes in, but many people don’t feel anything. The discomfort you tend to experience with acupuncture while the needles are in place is a deep dull aching, known as ‘De Qi’. According to traditional Chinese practice is the stimulation of energy at that point and is a good sign the needles are doing their job.
