It is extremely safe!! It is an all natural, drug free therapy, yielding no negative side effects, just feelings of relaxation and well-being. There is little danger of infection from acupuncture needles because they are sterile, used once and then disposed of. 

Acupuncturists (including myself) undertake 3-4 years of extensive and comprehensive graduate training at nationally certified schools. All acupuncturists must pass national exams & meet strict guidelines to practice in every state.
