Acupuncture and Modern Medicine

November 26, 2010

It has an ancient history and at times it seems mysterious.
Experts say no therapy is as old as acupuncture, which goes back more than 15 hundred years.
The ancient practice of sticking needles into the skin was useful before modern medicine was invented.
And now, the alternative medicine therapy is offered at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
While still in its ‘infant stage’ in the U.S.,
acupuncture patients say it really helps relieve their pain.
