Acupuncture Research

For over 3,000 years, acupuncture has been used as to treat people suffering from imbalances and disorders. The secrets of acupuncture have been supported through studies conducted at leading medical research facilities from around the globe.  Acupuncture in Joliet is accepted as a viable form of health-care treatment.

Medical physicians are referring patients to acupuncturists more than any other alternative medical practitioners as they understand the benefits that we can provide.

In 2008, the Institute for Work & Health conducted a study and found that a form of acupuncture called, Tui Na, was the most effective treatment available for back pain. A study which was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine also stated that acupuncture was a viable alternative to modern medical approaches in treating lower back pain.

Another article published in The British Medical Journal stated that acupuncture was extremely successful at treating pregnant women for common related issues, all without using drugs or medications that could potentially be harmful to the unborn child.

In 2008, a Swedish study involving cancer patients reported that acupuncture was effective in the reduction of nausea while undergoing radiation treatments.

Acupuncture was also found to be an effective treatment for issues regarding asthma. The University of Heidelberg reported these findings in 2007.
