WHY: An estimated 36 percent of U.S. adults use some form of complementary and alternative
medicine (CAM), according to a survey by the National Center for Complementary and
Alternative Medicine, a component of the National Institutes of Health. Among the common
CAM practices identified by the survey were acupuncture, acupressure and herbal medicine.
A survey by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine
found that approximately one in ten adults had received acupuncture at least one time and 60
percent said they would readily consider acupuncture as a potential treatment option.
