Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical techniques, originating in China more than 2,500 years ago. It began with the discovery that stimulating different areas of the body affects well-being. Acupuncture has evolved into a scientifically studied, worldwide system of holistic medicine that helps to restore and maintain health, while improving quality of life.
Acupuncture has now become the complementary medicine most widely recommended by physicians in the U.S. In 1997, the National Institute of Health (NIH) reviewed scientific literature about acupuncture and concluded it to be an effective, minimally invasive and reasonable treatment for the relief of a wide variety of conditions. The NIH now includes a department solely devoted to studying Complementary and Alternative medicine (CAM), with a large focus on acupuncture. The World Health Organization and US Surgeon Generals have all endorsed acupuncture as an effective therapy for a variety of health conditions including: musculo-skeletal & neurological problems; pain; gastro-Intestinal issues; digestive disorders; problems with the eyes, ears, nose, and throat; genito-urinary issues; reproductive and fertility issues; imbalances in women’s health; and mental and emotional disorders.
