Last Updated: December 5, 2022

Acupuncture is very effective at treating and managing various conditions. Always remember to see a licensed professional. While rare, there can be some minor side effects with acupuncture. These can include minor bruising or bleeding at the needle site; soreness or numbness at the needle site; dizziness, nausea; fatigue; headache; skin irritation; muscle twitching.

Although uncommon, remember to communicate any discomfort with your acupuncture provider so they can provide comfort quickly and effectively while they work with you to treat and manage your health condition.
