Acupuncture Is One Of The Oldest Known
Healing Practices That Is A Form Of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Over its 2500 years of
development, a wealth of experience has accumulated in the practice of
acupuncture, attesting to the wide range of diseases and conditions that can be
effectively treated with this approach. Unlike many other traditional methods
of treatment, which tend to be specific to their national or cultural origin,
acupuncture has been used throughout the world, particularly since the 1970s.
In recognition of the increasing worldwide interest in the subject, the World
Health Organization (WHO) conducted a symposium on acupuncture in June 1979 in
Beijing, China. Physicians practicing acupuncture in different countries were
invited to identify the conditions that might benefit from this therapy. The participants
drew up a list of 43 suitable conditions and diseases.
The past four decades
have seen extensive studies on acupuncture, and great efforts have been made to
conduct controlled clinical trials that include the use of “sham” acupuncture
or “placebo” acupuncture controls. Although still limited in number because of
the difficulties of carrying out such trials, convincing reports, based on
sound research methodology, have been published. In addition, experimental
investigations on the mechanism of acupuncture have been carried out. This
research, while aimed chiefly at answering how acupuncture works, may also
provide evidence in support of its effectiveness.
