An acupuncture needle is very small, much smaller than a hypodermic/injection needle and is pain free. In fact, approximately 20 acupuncture needles can fit inside the shaft of a hypodermic needle, they are that small.
Not only does acupuncture not cause pain, the benefits of acupuncture has a large span of what it can treat. Acupuncture can help the prevention of disease, potentially reverse disease, postpone or prevent surgery, relieve pain and discomfort in the body, balance hormones, reduce stress and ease anxiety.
Acupuncture is a successful adjunct therapy to Western conventional treatments, physical therapy and massage.

In fact, approximately 20 acupuncture needles can fit inside the shaft of a hypodermic needle, they are that small.
