MacPherson, H., Thomas, K., Walters, S. and Fitte, M. (2001) The York acupuncture safety study: prospective survey of 34 000 treatments by traditional acupuncturists. British Medical Journal, 323 (7311). pp. 486-487. ISSN 0959-8138
Recent reports have highlighted the importance of having good evidence on the safety of acupuncture. 1 2 Sound evidence on the risks associated with acupuncture is, however, scarce.3 Our primary aim, therefore, was to describe the type and frequency of adverse events after acupuncture. A secondary aim was to examine mild transient reactions associated with acupuncture, some of which may indicate a positive response to treatment.
