Aging & Senior Health

Acupuncture is recognized by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to be effective in the treatment of a wide variety of medical problems. Acupuncture is effective therapy for neurological disorders and in treating pain and inflammation. In the past 2,000 years, more people have been successfully treated with acupuncture than with all other health modalities combined. Today, acupuncture is practiced widely in Asia, Russia, and Europe. It is now being used more and more in the United States of America by patients and physicians.

WHO recently published a comprehensive review and analysis of reports on controlled clinical trials. To download a copy of this list, please click here. The University of Miami Health System also integrates acupuncture with its Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program. In 2010, researchers at the Institute of Biomedical Research at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil discovered that acupuncture treatments increase T-cell proliferation, especially within the elderly group, thereby boosting the immune system. The same study also concluded that acupuncture significantly reduces depression, anxiety, and stress.
