What is Medical Acupuncture

Medical acupuncture is the term used to describe acupuncture performed by a doctor trained and licensed in Western medicine who has also had thorough training in acupuncture as a specialty practice. Such a doctor can use Western Medicine or Acupuncture, or a combination of both, as the need arises to treat an illness. Very often the combination is the most beneficial such as in case of treating cancer or managing pain.
