Is it possible to get diarrhoea after acupuncture?

Acupuncture . I did once. Another acupuncturist & i were practicing ear points. In order to become familiar with pts, she put in many, many needles in my ears (far more than we would ever do for treatment). It was very overstimulating to the bowel. There are specific protocols to help move material through the colon that could lead to lose stool. However, no, in general, acupuncture does cause this as a se.
