How safe is acupuncture?

When performed by a competently trained, licensed professional, acupuncture is extremely safe. Each point on the body is first swiped with an alcohol-soaked cotton ball to clean dirt and oil from the skin prior to inserting needles. Today all licensed acupuncturists, in accordance with The California State Acupuncture Board’s requirements, use individually packaged, sterile, single-use disposable needles. So, in short, there is virtually no chance of infection or contagion.
