Well, to be honest, yes it does! It is being done with needles after all. But it really doesn’t feel all that bad and after the first few minutes, the body’s natural endorphins kick in and you do get used to it. It is irritating rather than agonizing, like a hot/cold buzzing feeling. Unless you have lived a life without hurting yourself in any way, then chances are you have felt a lot worse. And consider this-it is a bit of discomfort, for a lifetime’s pleasure.
