Lots of Pinprick Red Spots after Acupuncture?
We have been doing acupuncture for awhile not but recently have noticed something different. A couple weeks ago, after a treatment, Claire got lots of little pinprick red spots (not raised) around the area of a treatment. Her acupuncturist said it was just blood coming to the area. Then, after no treatment, she got more spots on her lower back (same area as before) and some on her legs (where we have not even had acupuncture in awhile). I googled it and lots of terrible things came up. She just had a treatment yesterday, and around her lower back, she has over 100 spots and they are on various other areas of her body as well. Since google has so many awful things to say (not specifically with acu.-just the blood spots in general) but my acupuncturist seems to think its no big deal, I wanted to check to see if any of you have had similar experiences after acupuncture.
