East meets West with Contemporary Acupuncture

Contemporary medical acupuncture, also known as Western medical acupuncture, is an approach to acupuncture that integrates traditional Chinese acupuncture techniques with knowledge and principles from Western medicine. It combines the ancient practice of acupuncture with a modern understanding of anatomy, physiology, evidence-based medicine, and is often based on a Western anatomical and physiological understanding of the body.
