Acupuncture is Everywhere

by Friselina Locadia, LAc

Acupuncture was, for a long time, considered a pariah by western medicine due to a distorted perception of the traditional Chinese medicine. This has been changing rapidly as more and more respected and popular publications are featuring articles on the efficacy of acupuncture.

Publications ranging from The Washington Post to CBC or Today have featured articles on the rise of acupuncture and its potential benefits. There have even been a lot of celebrity sightings after acupuncture treatment such as Gwen Stefani or Gwyneth Paltrow.

While some chalk this up as just a fad, the science is anything but fleeting as researchers are consistently finding new potential for acupuncture while proving its effectiveness in treating stress, chronic pain and a number of other ailments. With so many publications and celebrities raving about the benefits of acupuncture it’s easy to overlook it as just another craze but this type of healing has been around for thousands of years, and it was only just recently that the west has started to realize the numerous benefits of acupuncture. 1D80136618
