Side Effects: Acupuncture?

By Chris Lawrence

Not really, it is a very dependable means of assisting the body to encourage healing.

If done right, acupuncture barely invokes any real side effects. Some people sense a brief stinging feeling, like a needle prick, while the needle is introduced. Other people have a small ache around the needle after it is introduced.

Other side effects noticed by researchers resulted from errors made by the acupuncturist. For example, numerous acupuncturists have failed to consult their patience for other kinds of treatment that might be more effective for their illness.

Some acupuncturists have even reprocessed needles and given their patients serious infections. A few have even injured their patients by inserting a needle into a vital organ.

It is also average with the first 1 or 2 processes to have a feeling of deep relaxation or even short term disorientation right after the procedure. These side effects should go away within 24-48 hours.

Make sure you speak to your acupuncturist throughout the procedure. Your comfort is a essential. The more you talk to them, the more the acupuncturist will be able to help you.

A number of individuals have experienced some more serious side effects, dizziness, excessive perspiration, and nausea are some of the accounted side effects.

There have even been a few events reported where individuals lost awareness. However, these matters will clear up on their own. There will be no lasting side effects for the person.
