Should your problem be something that is not within our scope of practice, we will redirect you to the appropriate specialty or medical professional.There are very few known side effects when practiced by a fully qualified practitioner of traditional acupuncture. Any minor side effects that do occur, such as dizziness or bruising, are mild and self-correcting.
