Yes and no!?
You have to have a treatment to feel what it is like.
There are 2 levels of "ouch" that my patients tell me they feel. The first is the skin level ouch. Light as a feather to as if popped by a ruler. The deeper ouch can be from nothing to 7-8 level pain. This deeper pain is the chi or ache in the muscles that signals activation of the healing cycle. You are the guide as to how you tolerate it.
