If you are afraid of needles it is important that you consult with the physician to discuss alternative acupuncture therapies. However, the needles used in acupuncture treatment are finer than the ones used for injections and blood tests. You may feel little or no sensation when the needle penetrates into your skin. Once in place the needles are hardly noticeable.
