Page 4 - In The Land Of The Blind

Of course China is the birthplace of Acupuncture and should be honored for it’s great gift to the world. There are many gifted and compassionate practitioners who work in the Chinese tradition of acupuncture and this article is not trying to suggest that any one style is better than any other. Rather, my intention is to educate the public about the wonderful diversity of styles available to us here in the west.

I suggest that those who are interested in seeking out the many therapeutic benefits of acupuncture try a variety of styles and practitioners to find out first hand which works best for them.
