Sep 24, 2013 10:38AM
One in 10 American adults has received acupuncture at least once and nearly half of them say they are “extremely” or “very” satisfied with their treatment, according to a survey sponsored by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Sixty percent of survey respondents readily accepted the idea of acupuncture as a treatment option, and 20 percent have used other forms of Oriental medicine, including herbs and Chinese bodywork.

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day is observed on Oct. 24. For more information, visit
