  Acupuncture today in the West  
Acupuncture is an ancient art for the modern world today. It has been used in western pain management since 1970s and treatment of many medical disorders (Bensoussan, 1997). Current research and evidence based studies have shown that acupuncture promotes the production of ˇ°endorphinsˇ± that relieves pain, improves the immune system, regulates blood flow and hormones, is anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic, and improves overall feeling of well-being.

The effectiveness and relative lack of risk of acupuncture treatment has found increasing acceptance in the Western medical practice, particularly in pain relief. In 2007 the National Health Interview Survey estimated 3.1 million adults in the United States had used acupuncture in the past year.
