This report summarizes the remarkable safety record of acupuncture for the last 25 years. Articles from the English language literature (and a few from abroad) regarding problems are summarized, including the type of incident, training of the practitioner (if stated) and outcome of the patient. A survey showing the number of disciplinary actions by state acupuncture regulatory bodies is included. An excellent tool to demonstrate the safety record of qualified practitioners, and problems when practitioners are not qualified, for legislators, third party payers and others.
