I Want Your Opinions!

Home » Chinese Medicine News and Research » I Want Your Opinions!

A 2007 survey by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (part of the National Institutes of Health) showed that less than 2 percent of adults in the U.S. had received acupuncture in the past year.

A 2003 survey by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine found that about 9% of adults had tried acupuncture at some point in their lives.

For a system of medicine that has been in the United States since the 1970s (and in other parts of the world for thousands of years), this seems to me like a very low number.

Acupuncture is completely natural and virtually side-effect free. It can be extremely effective for many conditions (just ask our patients). And, thanks in part to many positive research studies, it is growing in acceptance in the Western medical community

So, why don’t more people try acupuncture? I’ve written a survey based on several theories. Please take 2 minutes (it’s only 4 questions) to answer the questions with your honest opinion. Do you think I’ve missed an explanation? Please feel free to write in other thoughts.

I will share the responses in a future blog post (all surveys are anonymous).

I’m truly interested in your opinions– please take the survey today!
