Acupuncture Safety
 
 

Acupuncture originated in China more than 2,000 years ago, making it one of the oldest and most commonly used medical procedures in the world. (Fig.1)

Acupuncture began to become better known in the United States in 1971, when New York Times reporter James Reston wrote about how doctors in China used needles to ease his pain after surgery.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved acupuncture needles for use by licensed practitioners in 1996. The FDA requires that sterile, nontoxic needles be used and that they be labeled for single use by qualified practitioners only.

The needles are opened just prior to use by the acupuncture practioner, therefore the risk of infection is very low, and it is safe. Acupuncture has relatively few side effects.

The general theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease. Acupuncture may correct imbalances of flow at identifiable points (acupuncture points) close to the skin.

The most thoroughly studied mechanism of stimulation of acupuncture points employs penetration of the skin by hair-thin, solid, metallic needles, which are manipulated manually or by electrical stimulation.
