It is very safe.
Bleeding problems and infections related to acupuncture are rare. It can provide pain relief without any "drug- drug interactions. There are no medication side effects. It can help to accelerate many types of healing. It can also help with behavioral health problems.

The insurance companies have place Acupuncture and needling in the category of surgery. All surgery are consider invasive. (IMO that is strictly politics and about money) These needles are the safest therapy in medicine and not worry.
