There are sensations associated with effective acupuncture and you need to differentiate the sensation of a treatment with the pain of an injury.
While it is not painful, it is not sensation-less.
In general they are not the same, the sensation of painful injury compared to the sensation of Acupuncture.
It can help to begin your experience with a single needle to establish a common vocabulary between you and your Acupuncturist. Depending on which step of the treatment you are in, you will be able to feel the small and most often insignificant sensation of insertion, the arrival of energy once at therapeutic depth, the varying intensity associated with manipulation by fingers or by electro-stimulation and then the feeling of removal which can also be insignificant.
A basic overview of the typical sensations may be described as dull, numb, or heavy feeling in the local tissue area, sometimes extending along the appendage. The sensation can start small and build and sometimes it arrives in a rush.
Have yourself some fun!
