I’ve been happy to see that the Wall Street Journal has been taking an interest in acupuncture. Earlier this year WSJ’s health columnist Melinda Beck got acupuncture on camera to reduce her neck and back pain, she reported that she felt better after two treatments. To read her article
“Decoding an Ancient Therapy – High-Tech Tools Show How Acupuncture Works in Treating Arthritis, Back Pain, Other Ills” and see the video of Melinda getting acupuncture click here.
In June the WSJ reported on the new research linking adenosine, a neurotransmitter that reduces pain, to acupuncture. Plus they made the point that acupuncture is not just for humans with this very sweet video about Tracy Akner a veterinarian in New York who performs acupuncture on dogs and loves her job.
I hope the WSJ and other mainstream news sources continue to notice the many health benefits of acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
