Acupuncture is getting a lot of good press lately, and justifiably so. More people are asking for it to be covered under their insurance and more insurers are just now discovering that acupuncture saves them money…
It really feels good when you open the New York Times and see an article featuring acupuncture. When y0u first read the article you are pleased that the writer is relating a personal experience. I am not bothered when inaccuracies are present because I know that the average person reading is just interested in wether it worked or not and how much pain is involved.
I noticed that there seem to be more instances of MD’s advocating acupuncture for many issues in a sort of guarded very carefully worded statements, but again , I just enjoy the publicity. I remember a very famous quote from a long time ago, “Any press is Good “ or was that about ACUPRESSURE….
