Acupuncture does not use pharmaceutical drugs; it is safe and does no harm to the body when properly administered by trained practitioners. The needles are solid, unlike hypodermic needles, and are more shallowly inserted into the skin. Please ask if you have any specific questions regarding the safety of acupuncture treatments and always check that you are being treated by a qualified acupuncturist. It is also very important to tell your practitioner about serious illnesses, especially easy bruising and problems with clotting.
