How good is Chinese accupunture for healing

Q:  How good is Chinese accupunture for healing


A:  A good question, but almost unanswerable in a short paragraph!
Acupuncture is simply a system of medicine which helps the body to return to normal function. How good it is depends on how complex the problems which beset the patient, how long the problem(s) have been troubling them, how clear the diagnosis of their problems is, and how competent the practitioner is. There is a growing body of evidence of acupuncture's efficacy for a number of named conditions, but the strength of the system lies in the fact that it has existed for two and half thousand years and continues to be a treatment of choice for many millions of people across the globe.
