In the past two decades, acupuncture has grown in popularity in the United States. A report from a Consensus Development Conference on Acupuncture held at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 1997 stated that acupuncture is being "widely" practiced -- by thousands of physicians, dentists, acupuncturists, and other practitioners -- for relief or prevention of pain and for various other health conditions.
In 2002 National Health Interview Survey--the largest and most comprehensive survey of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) use by American adults to date--an estimated 8.2 million U.S. adults had used acupuncture at one time.
At Acupuncture Healing Center we believe it's important to work in tandem with other physicians. We are happy to recommend Julie Gibson McGregor, MD of Triangle Integrative Medicine Associates.
