Is Acupuncture Safe?
Acupuncture is extremely safe. Properly administered acupuncture does no harm.
There are certain conditions you should notify your doctor of before undergoing treatment, such as if you have a pacemaker, or you if you are a hemophiliac. During the history, your doctor will ask you many questions to determine if you are a good candidate for acupuncture. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to ask your doctor.
Does it Hurt?
Acupuncture does not hurt. Acupuncture needles are solid and hair-thin.
While each person experiences acupuncture differently, most people feel no pain or only a minumal amount of pain as the needles are inserted. Once the needles are in, there should not be any pain.
During a treatment, some people feels a sensation of excitement, while others feel relaxed.
