Is acupuncture safe? What if I am pregnant?

Yes!  We use single use, disposable, sterilized needles.  The needles are immediately disposed of properly and never reused. The acupuncturists in our clinic are fully licensed in the state of Arizona and nationally board certified by the NCCAOM. In order to be nationally board certified it is required to pass board exams, finish a 4- year Master’s Degree level program, pass multiple safety certifications and undergo yearly continuing education. In addition, Heidi has extensive clinical experience.  

Acupuncture is safe and gentle enough to use while pregnant.  It can really help with morning sickness and other pregnancy difficulties!  There are certain points that should be avoided so be sure to let your acupuncturist know if you are pregnant.
