Acupuncture in the United States Traditional Chinese medicine has been practiced for thousands of years in Asia, but was virtually unknown in the United States until President Nixon visited China in 1971. Since that time, public interest has grown tremendously and acupuncture has become a very important and promising part of our health care system.

Many modern research studies, conducted in all parts of the world, have concluded that acupuncture is indeed effective in the treatment of a wide variety of disorders, and many other such studies are currently in progress.

Chinese Medicine as a Complement to Conventional Medicine At Acupuncture West, LLC, we have a healthy respect for conventional medicine and believe that it has a very important place in our society. We recommend that our patients also look to their Western primary care practitioner (i.e., MD) for medical care and routine check-ups. We believe that all medical systems have their own intrinsic strengths.
Although Oriental medicine is fundamentally different than conventional medicine, both systems can be very effective in helping individuals to feel better and healthier. Ultimately, the two systems combined together have the greatest potential to support, strengthen, and nurture an individual back to health and well being.
