Safety

Acupuncture is generally very safe when performed by a well-trained, well-qualified practitioner, using single-use only disposable needles. However, in very rare cases injury may occur — less than one per 10,000 treatments. Acupuncture side-effects are also very rare, but may include drowsiness (probably from a general relaxation effect, and release of endorphins — helpful in reducing pain), minor bleeding or bruising (less than 3% of treatments); fainting; and symptoms occasionally, briefly, getting worse (less than 3% of treatments).
