Lower quality needles are more difficult to insert, and because of the roughness, increase friction, requiring more force. The result is a sharp sensation on the insertion, and pain with the placement.
I only ever use my needles once, then discard them. Acupuncture needles should never be reused. Reusing needles is not sanitary, and with multiple users, the needles become dull and painful.
If you have tried acupuncture in Ecuador, and found the experience to be uncomfortable, make an appointment with me, and I will do everything I can to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed throughout your session.
