When it comes to health issues, I am a believer in the theory that if it can’t hurt but it might help then you have to give it a try. Though acupuncture has a lot of potential benefits, many people theorize that it only works as a placebo. Still, an estimated 3 million American adults get acupuncture treatment each year even though it is somewhat controversial.
Acupuncture is when small needles are gently inserted at specific points on the body to promote health and recovery. It began as part of traditional Chinese medicine, yet today there are acupuncturists practicing regularly all over the world.
My feeling is that relief is relief. Whether it comes from real acupuncture alone or whether there is an additional placebo effect, does it really matter?
Here are some of the various issues for which those 3 million Americans are seeking acupuncture treatment. Could acupuncture help you?
