A primer on acupuncture
Language: 
English
Abstract: 

Although widely practiced in China for 2,000 years, acupuncture was introduced in the United States 40 years ago, and it has only gained acceptance by the medical establishment here in recent years. Now, a growing body of evidence supports its efficacy for a number of conditions, and it is being routinely recommended for them. This article provides an overview of acupuncture and reviews some of the evidence showing its effectiveness for treating various conditions.
