When it comes to the practice of acupuncture - I, for one, do believe that it works.

Now, I would never say that acupuncture was a total "cure-all". No way.

But, for someone, like myself, who is not in favour of taking prescription medicine - I have greatly benefited from acupuncture treatments which have definitely helped me to overcome various ailments over these many years.

And, the truth is - These days acupuncture is quickly becoming the most popular and widely accepted complimentary therapies in the Western world.

Intelligently written by acupuncturist, Angela Hicks - This helpful "handbook" offers one a thorough overview of acupuncture as a safe and sane alternative to conventional medical practices.

And, believe me - Acupuncture sure beats taking drugs and/or submitting oneself to going under the blade of a surgeon's scalpel.
