In case you have never received acupuncture, you may be wondering if acupuncture hurts? It is nowhere near the kind of painful sensation you might have experienced from a hypodermic needle injection, various types of bug bites, or even a paper cut. Instead, the kind of sensation produced from stimulating the particular area of the body where the needle is inserted is quite unusual and wonderful. There are innumerable ways to describe it; in Chinese it is referred to as “de qi”. Volumes of books and articles have been written on the subject of “de qi” for more than a millennium.
