How safe is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is extremely safe. Our licensed acupuncturists are trained and certified in clean needle techniques.

Acupuncture is an all-natural, drug-free therapy, yielding no 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 discarded. The skin is cleaned with a medical grade alcohol before needle insertion.

Our practitioners wear disposable exam gloves and continue to wear face masks during the current pandemic. We follow strict disinfecting protocols between before and after each patient encounter.

Patient masks are encouraged but not currently required. We provide masks upon request.
