If you are thinking about having acupuncture you probably have questions. Does it work? Will it work for me? How does it work? Is it safe? How should I go about finding an acupuncturist? What kinds of acupuncture exist? All these questions, and others, are answered here. The main kind of acupuncture discussed in the book is the non-traditional version -- Western medical acupuncture. But the traditional version is explained as well. The author is a conventionally qualified doctor who has practised acupuncture and taught it to health professionals for over thirty years.
