|Acupuncture is among one of the most commonly used modalities as a complementary therapy to the conventional medical practice. Accumulated studies have concluded that acupuncture is a recommendable therapeutic tool for a variety of medical conditions including side effects of chemotherapy, chronic pain, chemical dependence, infertility and headaches. Basic scientific laboratory research has suggested that acupuncture helps induce endorphin production, improve blood circulation, hormone balance, immune modulation and neurotransmitter balance. However, the understanding how acupuncture works, its indications for referral, its efficacy, and potential side effects have prevented practitioners and patients from the benefits of using this safe and effective modality in their health care. This presentation is designed to discuss the basic concepts and applications of acupuncture and to help the participants better integrate acupuncture in their daily practice. Objective of this presentation is to let audience know about: Basic theoretic foundations of acupuncture; application, efficacy, and safety of acupuncture and; integration of acupuncture with modern medical practice.|
