It is the just as safe as drawing blood or giving an injection. Thousands of diabetic give themselves injection every day without a peep.
Dr. Heidi Fowler
Psychiatry

In brief: Very safe.

There have been reported deaths by individuals who were not trained in acupuncuture doing it on themselves.
In each case the individual used a lack of judgment and tooks actions that no trained acupuncturist would attempt. Acupuncture is very safe.
