Does acupuncture work? YES!
Is there scientific clinical research to verify that viewpoint? YES!
The World Health Organisation commissioned a large scale study of research in 1996 that showed acupuncture was effective (strong language for WHO as their standard for efficacy is high!) in the following conditions:
Low Back Pain
Post chemo nausea/vomiting
Allergic Rhinitis (seasonal and perennial persistent)
Pain (post operative)
Since then clinical research into acupuncture has outpaced the research into biomedicine. Mounting research evidence shows that in addition to the conditions above, there are another 147 conditions where acupuncture is therapeutically effective. So yes it does work!
Apparently there is often a gap of 17 years between research findings and clinical application of research findings. But here in Richmond, no gap need exist! You can get effective and safe natural treatment for what ails you.
