What's acupuncture like? Does it hurt?

Many people cringe at the thought of acupuncture. They will often say I don't like needles. But the key point is that most people's experience with needles are the shots they receive either from their M.D. or the dentist. However, acupuncture needles are much much smaller. The sensation of being needled is more on the level of a mosquito or even no pain at all.
Take a look at this video from expert village. It has a demonstration of someone receiving acupuncture.
