The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM) Recommended CAM Therapies And Cupping Therapy
The new ACOEMguidelines define acupuncture as follows:
"Acupuncture originated in China and is based in part on the theory that many diseases are manifestations of an imbalance between yin and yang as reflected by disruption of normal vital energy flow (qi) in specific locations referred to as meridians. Needling along one of the 361 classical acupuncture points on these meridians is believed to restore the balance. This stimulation is classically done with thin, solid, metallic needles, which are then manipulated (or turned) manually or stimulated electrically (electroacupuncture). Besides needling, acupuncture frequently involves moxibustion and cupping. In addition to traditional Chinese acupuncture, there are many other types of acupuncture, including those that access non-traditional acupuncture points. Acupuncture has been utilized to treat many different musculoskeletal and other disorders, with some evidence that patients seek this treatment if they have more severe pain."
