acupuncture side effects

As previously mentioned, acupuncture is an extremely safe method of treatment, and as such, acupuncture side effects and complications are extremely rare when treated by an experienced, licensed acupuncturist. However, a small number of patients do have reactions to the procedure which may include nausea, lightheadedness and fainting. As in any matter pertaining to health, any concerns should be discussed with the practitioner prior to treatment and following treatment to ensure maximum effectiveness.
