Accupuncurist with HIV
Nov 18, 2004

Is it safe for a person with HIV to be practising as an accupunturist? What is the risk of an HIV positive person inserting needles on patients?

Response from Ms. Breuer

What is the risk, indeed? The needles are solid, not hollow. The acupuncturist is not inserting them into himself/herself first. Where's the risk?
