Acupuncture is preferred by most people who believe in the natural healing process. They adopt acupuncture to stay away from the side effects that result from mainstream healing processes. The effects of chemicals on our body can be long-lasting which is absent in alternative medicines.

However, there are some minor side effects of acupuncture that you should be aware of. Bruising and bleeding from the areas where the needles are inserted is common. You may experience soreness also. However, most of these side effects vanish after a few days. Dizziness and nausea in the short term are other side effects of acupuncture. Except these, acupuncture is safe, effective and can be adopted by anyone.
