Public Resources about Acupuncture

  • Acupuncture makes the cover of Newsweek. If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is it worth to appear on the front page of a popular magazine? The editors of Newsweek have devoted 30 pages of its December 2, 2002 issue to a special report entitled " The Science of Alternative Medicine". The issue's cover photo features a young woman receiving acupuncture.

  • Survey: nearly 1 in 10 U.S. adults has tried acupuncture. The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) has released the results of a national survey concerning the use of acupuncture in the United States. The survey found that nearly one out of every 10 adults in the U.S. has tried acupuncture. Adjusting these figures for the total number of American adults reveals that approximately 20 million Americans over the age of 18 have tried acupuncture at some time in their lives.
