To what depth does the needle come in?

  • The needle penetrates the skin only about 2-3 mm.

What is the needle made of?

  • Acupuncture does not cause bleeding; a small drop of blood may sometimes appear.

Is the pain a result of the stabbing? What type of pain can you expect?

  • The pain is not due to the stab; the needle is thin and does not cause pain.
  • The pain can be sharp, temporary, or similar to a mild electric shock. (The pains vary from person to person.)
