In general, acupuncture is very safe when practiced by a full-trained acupuncturist. However, there are certain conditions that you should notify your acupuncturist about before receiving the treatment. For instance, electroacupuncture should be avoided if you are carrying a pacemaker. In case you are a hemophiliac or have a tendency to bleed or bruise easily, you may want to consider a different type of care, including the needle-less acupuncture. The needles we use are sterile, individually packed and disposable; therefore there is no risk of disease transmission caused by the treatments.
