"It will be an eye opener for the public to see that acupuncture is widely practiced and that research in this area is going on . . . all over the world . . . It has been proven many times . . . that acupuncture can work in many cases where conventional medicine has failed." Nelly Tsiving, licensed acupuncturist Throughout history, acupuncture has provided painless, low-cost, non-invasive relief for conditions ranging from back pain and headaches to cancer and AIDS. As Americans seek viable, cost-effective health care alternatives, the benefits of acupuncture are gaining new respect in the West. In this guide, Marie Cargill, a licensed acupuncturist, de-mystifies acupuncture, explaining: * how and why acupuncture works * how acupuncture is effective in most major medical specializations * what you can expect from a visit to the acupuncturist Detailed, direct, and easy-to-follow, Acupuncture will persuade skeptics of the potential for this effective approach to healing.
