Safety Issues and Acupuncture
There are no known harmful side effects from acupuncture, but occasionally there may be slight bruising. Research shows that serious side effects are very rare, less than 1 per 10,000 treatments.
Your practitioner will need to know about any medicines you are taking and the doses. Please bring a list with you.
Try to arrive relaxed for your appointment and take things easy for a couple hours afterwards, to maximise the effectiveness of the treatment.
