Q: What about the needles used?
A: Single-use pre-sterilised disposable needles are used, which are disposed of immediately after use. Stringent standards for hygiene and sterilisation are in place.

Q: Is acupuncture safe?
A: There have been three surveys in the last six years which have shown that acupuncture is amongst the safest therapies in use in the UK today. Out of 68,000 recorded treatments in two of the 2001 surveys, there were only 14 minor (bruising, feeling nauseous) adverse events. There have been very few reports of serious adverse events, and most adverse effects are transient, lasting no more than a day or so.
