I have heard of how effectively acupuncture does with pain and metal issues but not with addiction. It is kind of new for me. I will look it up if anyone knows more about it.
What is quality in modern management?

Thank you very much.
To be more specific it is not for me.One friend of mine who knows that I am going to visit China this summer wants me to visit one center of accupuncture and get information ...


My Doctor wife tells me that it is standard practice for everybody to use one time sealed needles here. However, that is not to say that a very small number may not and your friend should excercise the same degree of caution as she would with a private clinic in the West - look for the sealed packs of needles.

I have no idea of the effectiveness of acupuncture beyond muscular treatment. My best guess is that it is like many alternative therapies which appear to rely on the belief that they are working rather than any physical intervention. Personally, I would save my money and buy chewing gum.

Treatment for addiction through acupuncture is not commonly available in China. However, my wife tells me that in China there is a developing interest in the applications of accupuncture being promoted in the West. The place to ask would be the drug stores who could direct you to a small clinic who claim an understanding on the subject.

Xilaren:

In your opening post you ask for the pros and cons of acupuncture.

One of the down sides is the increased risk of contracting hepatitis - from the needles. This has been an issue here in Canada. You can find out more by googling the key words.

I suppose any medical treatment has its risks. Govern yourself accordingly.
