Acupuncture is very safe when practiced by a trained and licensed practitioner. Also because it is drug-free, you avoid the risk of drugs which can cause many side-effects or dependency. During each acupuncture session your treatment is adjusted according to your symptoms so that you receive constant monitoring of any changes.
Only DISPOSABLE NEEDLES, which are individually wrapped used in our clinic. These needles are discarded as medical waste after each use, insuring you absolute safety.
Always inform any health practitioner about all pre-existing conditions, known problems and medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant, and if you have a pacemaker. Acupuncturists receive a extensive training and are licensed by strict state regulatory boards. Many acupuncturists work closely with medical doctors in their local community who regularly find that the combination of treatments is very effective and beneficial for the patient.
