Acupuncture is one of many forms of Chinese medicine. More people probably have been treated by Chinese medicine throughout history than by any other formalized system of medical care.
Acupuncture has been practiced in the United States for only about 40 years, as a result of the United States opening diplomatic relations with China in 1972. By contrast, acupuncture has been practiced in England for over 400 years and in France for over 900 years. Most people learn about acupuncture either through someone who has personally benefited from treatment or through recent media attention.
