Acupuncture has been practiced
in China for more than 3,000 years. The World Health
Organization has cited acupuncture as a form of treatment
for over 100 health conditions. The FDA reclassified
acupuncture needles as medical devices in March 1996.
In November 1997 NIH endorsed acupuncture as a 'real'
field of medicine in the United States. A series of
controlled studies has shown evidence for the efficacy
of acupuncture in the treatment of a variety of conditions.
