Acupuncture always had a balanced review, with its supporters' equivalent to those who opposes it. However, after assessing more than 24 studies, it has been discovered that the therapy could be beneficial for those suffering from persistent headaches, backaches and arthritis; it might help them to get relief from the severe pain.
For some, the therapy is believed to just have a psychological impact. On the other hand, a few doctors assert that the technique has a detailed explanation to its benefits and they find no reason as to why people should not be allowed to access it, when they can get relief from their pain.
The therapy has been practiced since the ancient times. It targets specific points on the human body, which are kindled to help re-establish health or help the body recover from pain.
Acupuncture has been a key element in the conventional Chinese medical practice. It includes the insertion of metallic needles, which is carried out by hands or electrically.
However, criticism of the therapy started after certain incidents, including the one in which a Swiss doctor was held responsible for transmitting the HIV infection to 16 people, while carrying out the process.
The recent study, published in Archives of Internal Medicine, emphasized that acupuncture done using needle was better in comparison to other treatments and fake acupuncture.
