Safety in acupuncture

These guidelines are meant for hospitals, clinics and practitioners, and provide standards for safety in the clinical practice of acupuncture. Their purpose is to minimize the risk of infection and accidents, to alert acupuncturists to contraindications, and to advise on the management of complications occurring during treatment.
