Acupuncture Research

In the past two decades, acupuncture has grown in popularity in the United States. A Harvard University study published in 1998 estimated that Americans made more than five million visits per year to acupuncture practitioners. The report from a Consensus Development Conference on Acupuncture held at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 1997 stated that acupuncture is being "widely" practiced--by thousands of physicians, dentists, acupuncturists, and other practitioners--for relief or prevention of pain and for various other health conditions.

In 1979, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a list of 41 diseases amenable to acupuncture treatment. These include ENT, respiratory, and digestive ailments, post-stroke paralysis, asthma and other allergies, eye diseases, nervous system disorder, and various types of pain, to name just a few. Since this WHO proclamation and by means of WHO-sponsored training programs, acupuncture has spread successfully to many non-Asian nations on every continent. One reason for this support is that acupuncture a relatively inexpensive and cost-efficient modality requiring minimal high-tech equipment.

"I choose to inhabit my days
To allow my living to open me,
To make me less afraid, more accessible,
To loosen my heart,
Until it becomes a wing,
A torch, a promise."
