Should you try acupuncture?


That depends on a variety of factors.  Most new people to acupuncture can usually be categorized into three groups:

1. Patients who have tried more familiar therapies without success, particularly for a chronic or recurring problem, are good candidates for acupuncture.

2. Someone who is reluctant to endure the side effects of some more conventional Western therapies.

3. The person who wishes to emphasize wellness and prevention over the disease model of medicine and is willing to make concomitant lifestyle changes to achieve optimum health.
