A note on safety

For the past 50 years, acupuncture has been subjected to intensive scientific evaluation in over 8,000 clinical trials and has demonstrated its effectiveness in the treatment of many diseases occurring in modern Western societies. But in order to be a viable healthcare choice, any treatment must not only be effective but also be safe for patients, demonstrating a good balance of benefit to potential harm. If the effectiveness of acupuncture is impressive, its safety profile is even more so.

There is no other intervention in the modern Western medical system that can even comes close to acupuncture in terms of safety.
