In a word, yes. In fact, in experienced and qualified hands acupuncture is one of the safest medical procedures available.

The results of two independent surveys published in a British Medical Journal in September of 2001 showed the risk of serious adverse reactions occurring from acupuncture treatment is less than 1 in 10,000.

Another survey in 2003 produced almost identical results. Occasionally you may experience mild bruising at an acupuncture point or mild dizziness or slight tiredness. However these are very transient symptoms and are likely to be short lived.

You are in safe hands when you choose acupuncture treatment from a qualified, registered and experienced acupuncturist.



Regardless of your medically diagnosed condition acupuncture and natural medicine has something to offer.
