Question: How often are needles left in by accident after an acupncture appointment?

Asked by SilverHand 4 years ago

1 answer

I have long hair and usually keep it bound during treatment but was recently asked to loosen it so points along my crown could be reached, later that day I poked myself when brushing my hair and found 1 of the acupuncture needles had been left behind. Does this happen often? Shouldn't they count them on the setting in and then again on taking them out?

Good question , when I do a Acupuncture treatment I write down each point I am going to use and then when I take them out I put a tick along the point ,this way I never leave any in. I would like to say it hardly happens if you have the right sort of training.
