Is Acupuncture Painful?

It is a possibility that you might be more sensitive in specific regions, but generally it shouldn't hurt. On areas with thicker skin and muscles, acupuncture needles are typically not uncomfortable. Your tummy and back, for example, are less sensitive. Certain areas, such as your hands and feet, may be particularly sensitive, because they have more touch sensitivity.
