This was also done to balance the Yin and Yang energies as well. Acupuncture spread like wildfire in the Western world and soon became the most sought after form of alternative form of medicine. It began to be available at modern hospitals, and also to be greatly influenced by the Western form of medicine.
Acupuncture has several advantages such as its great availability, safety and practicality. It is extremely safe when conducted by a well-trained acupuncturist. Since it doesn’t involve the use of any extraneous or intravenous medicines, it is completely non-toxic, making the possibility of any adverse reactions, next to minimal. It is most safe when acupuncturists use clean needles that are for one time use. Any infections that may be caused are due to unsanitary needles, improper insertion of needles or neglect on the part of the acupuncturist.
