Acupuncture is safe

When performed by a trained practitioner, acupuncture is safe and generally causes few side effects. Occasionally, a patient may experience some discomfort, including lightheadedness, nausea, and fatigue, but these effects are short-lived. Some people may experience some bruising or mild bleeding at the acupuncture site. Those with bleeding disorders or who are taking blood-thinning medications are more susceptible to experiencing these side effects.

There are few side effects

While the side effects of acupuncture treatment are minimal, they are possible. A few patients experience fainting or syncope after receiving acupuncture. Symptoms should be noted right away and treated appropriately. A patient who experiences syncope should be observed for a moment and pulled out. Patients should be given sugar water and given first aid, if necessary. Two patients experienced a serious adverse reaction after receiving acupuncture and required CPR.
