    Pretty impressive free-hand technique with no guide tube, but I am noticing that they do not palpate the channel and points at all. I find this quite problematic. Just hitting textbook locations might be a fast way to practice but I have not found it very effective.

    @1awareness Not necessarily, it really depends on the style of acupuncture and what is being treated. Treating stroke recovery, for example, is a very intense type of acupuncture treatment and can be quite painful.

    Is it really true that it is some what painless?

    It felt like being pricked by a sharp corner of a plastic card, intially. May be some tingly sensation, like hitting upper part of your arm. soThen, numbness for the remaining period.

    No it does not. The needles are very thin and from personal experience I can say that there is no pain. This is a centuries old practice.
