This article in the Huffington Post does a great job of explaining the benefits of acupuncture and how it works! Here’s my favorite quote from the story – “Some folks still talk about whether or not they “believe” in acupuncture. Such thinking is ill-informed and outdated. One might as well speculate about whether to believe in aspirin, morphine, insulin, surgery or an MRI. The question is not whether acupuncture… works, but how it works, and whether it is the appropriate therapy for a particular syndrome, problem, symptom, disease or patient. In a clinical setting and performed by a licensed professional (licensure is by state) acupuncture is effective for a variety of complaints.”
