Are there any side effects with acupuncture?

Generally speaking, no.  Most patients feel extremely relaxed afterward.  Almost like they are floating “on air”.  This is a natural process due to the boost of neurotransmitters and “feel good” chemicals the brain releases with the treatment.

In cases of treating tight muscles and acute pain, sometimes their might be some soreness associated with the treatment around the area where some of the needles have been inserted.  This too is completely normal and is part of the body’s own healing response.  Such feelings typically disappear within 24 hours and feel no worse than how you might feel after a deep tissue massage.
