If you have been prescribed medication, we recommend that you inform your GP that you are considering Acupuncture therapy. You should continue your medication. During the initial consultation your acupuncturist will advise you of the contraindications such as metal allergy, haemophilia or if taking anti-coagulant medication. You may also be referred to your GP if the acupuncturist treating you recognises a risk during your consultation or even after treatment.
