From the cover: “In recent years acupuncture, once regarded with scepticism in the west, has become very much more widely known and accepted. Many doctors now see it as an adjunct to their conventional treatments, particularly in dealing with recurrent pain, and it is being effectively used in practices and hospitals throughout the western world. There are also a growing number of non-medical acupuncture practitioners. But what exactly is acupuncture; what are the theories behind it, and is there scientific evidence to support it? This book, by a qualified doctor, answers these questions and describes what to expect if you decide to have treatment by acupuncture.”
