It seems that acupuncture needles are being found in some interesting places recently. Check out this article I found on the Yahoo crawl today and then come back and I’ll tell you why you don’t ever have to worry about this happening to you.
All finished? Good. Now, why don’t you have to worry about this happening to you? No licensed acupuncturist in the United States has been taught or would choose to treat a patient in this manner because of the risks mentioned in this article. Whatever kind of acupuncture they are doing in South Korea, it’s obviously not what we do here in the United States.
It must be a slow news day for Yahoo.
I also beg to differ with the opinion that there is little evidence that acupuncture treats medical conditions. I see, hear and touch the evidence every day.
As always, call your acupuncturist if you have any questions or concerns. We always make ourselves available.
