Acupuncture and Modern Research

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is often more effective than Western interventions such as surgery and pharmaceutical drugs, but without the risks and side effects associated with such therapies. The National Institute of Health accepts Chinese Medicine for a wide variety of medical conditions including, but not limited to, neuro-muscular-skeletal problems, mental health conditions, and internal medicine. They predict acupunctureʼs rapid growth due to its high level of effectiveness and low level of risk. In an official report, Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials, the World Health Organization (WHO) has compiled a list of symptoms and conditions that have been shown through controlled trials to be effectively treated by acupuncture.
