Acupuncture is a form of healing which is several thousand years old and yet has only become part of the vocabulary of the average American in recent years. Although many people have been skeptical about acupuncture, it has increasingly gained acceptance as more and more people have been treated and helped by it. The fact that acupuncture benefits many people who have not been helped by conventional medical methods is indicative of its potential usefulness in this country.
