1. What You Should Know About Acupuncture
Make sure you find a qualified, licensed acupuncturist (only some provinces license practitioners and license requirements vary between provinces; look into the regulations where you live). Let the acupuncture practitioner know about any medical conditions you have, or if you’re pregnant. People on anticoagulant or antiplatelet drugs should talk to their doctor beforehand, since they may bleed easily despite the thinness of the needles. Electroacupuncture could cause problems for people with pacemakers-take caution and stick with traditional acupuncture if this applies to you.
