Email Acupuncture Safety Resource

Is acupuncture safe?

Acupuncture is one of the safest medical treatments, both conventional and complementary, on offer in the UK.

Acupuncture Safety Resource

This Acupuncture Safety Resource website has been created by the British Acupuncture Council, the British Medical Acupuncture Society and the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists. This group met in September 2015 to address the safe and legal use of acupuncture as a modality.

The group set out some basic principles for practitioners to follow, together with a clear visual safety guide for safe needling, drawn up by the BMAS.

This Acupuncture Safety Resource also offers up to date information and content for all healthcare professionals using acupuncture, as well as offering the general public and prospective patients an insight into the sophistication with which the practice of acupuncture is now undertaken in the UK.
