The use of acupuncture in China can be traced back at least 2,500 years. In comparison, many Americans were not introduced to this treatment until President Nixon visited China in 1972. Since then, interest in acupuncture has exploded in this country. More than 1 million Americans now receive acupuncture therapy each year for a range of health problems, from drug addiction to back pain. But is acupuncture for you?
