Is it normal to have bruising after acupuncture?
Yes, it is normal to have bruising after having acupuncture.
Sometimes there will be localised brushing of the skin after having acupuncture treatment. This is one of the minor side effects of having acupuncture.
Having bruising after acupuncture doesn't mean there is anything wrong with you, it's just a local problem of the skin hitting a blood vessel causing the bruising.
In cases when acupuncture treatment causes bruising to the skin, it will fade away after a few days and won't be a problem.
