Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese practice which heals disturbed energy flow throughout meridians with the use of acupuncture needles. It has gained growing popularity as an alternative and complementary therapeutic intervention in Western societies. This book reviews different methods, health benefits and the effectiveness of acupuncture based on current studies. Chapter One examines the use of acupuncture in oral medicine, while Chapter Two discusses its use in the treatment of variety of neuromusculoskeletal pain syndromes. Chapter Three introduces a novel approach for quantitative assessment of acupuncture based on surface electromyographs (sEMG) decomposition. The final chapter uses student-run medical clinics to provide a mutually beneficial acupuncture model for medical students and the chronically displaced populations. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
