FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DOES IT HURT?
Some people would like to try acupuncture but may not because they assume it will be painful. The needles we use are solid and much finer than those used for injections. In most cases only a slight prick is felt when the needle goes through the skin.

SHOULD MY DOCTOR KNOW?
If you have been seeing your doctor, you may want to tell him/her that you are going for acupuncture. Acupuncturists prefer that you do, and we would hope to reduce the
      need for medication and your doctor will need to be involved in any change to prescription medicines.

IS IT SAFE?
All members of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) must observe a Code of Practice, which lays down stringent standards of hygiene and sterilisation for needles and other equipment. These procedures have been approved by the Department of Health and provide protection against the transmission of infectious diseases.
