What will I feel during my acupuncture treatment?
Acupuncture needles are the same width as human hair, much thinner than an injection needle; so having acupuncture does not feel like having an injection. At PremierPhysio we only use high quality Classic Plus needles, which have an incredibly finely polished surface to minimise discomfort. Needles are disposable, pre-sterilised and individually packaged. When inserted, you may feel a temporary, sharp pricking sensation.
Any side effects tend to be mild and short-lived and may include: fatigue, light-headedness, bruising, localised bleeding or soreness or redness or mottling of the skin around the needle sites. If you continue to feel tired after a treatment, we recommend that you do not drive or operate machinery.
