What is medical acupuncture?

Traditional acupuncture in Asian countries has proven to be reasonably effective and relatively gentle therapy for pain and common health problems of visceral and endocrine regulation.

In the last few decades, acupuncuture has been widely accepted by the public in western countries.  As a result, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the international scientific community have examined this technique repeatedly and they have endorsed acupuncture as legitimate therapy in certain conditions.

Recently, acupuncture training for health care professionals has experienced an increasing demand in many western countries, making the development of gold standards of training a priority for teaching institutions. In 1999, the WHO established guidelines for training and safety in acupuncture.  The American Medical Association (AMA) has giving this standard to the course at McMaster University and their medical acupuncture course, our practitioners here only practice medical acupuncture.
