does acupuncture hurt?

Asking an acupuncturist about acupuncture can give you plenty of information about the use and curative effects of acupuncture, but to get at the experience of acupuncture, ask a patient.

Recently, I had a patient tell me this about the experience of acupuncture:

The sensation is like that of food prepared with just the right amount of spice.

Makes sense to me, acupuncture is about waking up our body and being to the vitality and enjoyment of life!
