Current Events Regarding Acupuncture

Sometimes my patients are surprised when they discover all the diverse ways that acupuncture is being used here in the United States. A good example of this is the research currently being conducted by the New England School of Acupuncture.  The school, also known as NESA, has been given a $1.2 million dollar grant from the Department of Defense to study the use of acupuncture as treatment for the multiple symptoms of Gulf War Illness. It is the first school to receive funding from the DOD.
