How safe is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is very safe. The needles used are sterile and disposable one time use only. Acupuncture has virtually no side effects. Some people experience light headedness or dizziness due to fear or anticipation of needling. This can best be avoided by eating a small snack before coming to your appointments. Most often people report a feeling of relaxation or an energized feeling during or following each treatment.
