As Managing Editor of The Green Guide from 1992-2000, I started learning more about alternative medicine and found acupuncture to be a nontoxic, well-researched and gentle therapy growing in popularity.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
Acupuncture therapy is growing rapidly here in the U.S. as a preferred and natural family medicine, but many people may be unaware what exactly an acupuncture treatment looks like.
In this new, two-minute video, Kristin Ebbert of Ebbert Acupuncture puts into context Chinese medicine's approach, the single-use needles, how herbal formulas are prescribed, and what a relaxing therapy acupuncture can be. Her goal is to educate the public on this effective therapy. "I created this video for people who are considering acupuncture therapy for chronic pain or other health concerns, but may not know what to expect," she explains.
Last week, many mainstream news agencies like TIME Magazine reported on a new study that found acupuncture to be a better treatment for chronic pain than standard pain therapies. "In a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers led by Andrew Vickers, an epidemiologist and biostatistician at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, report that acupuncture is effective in reducing people’s chronic pain — more so than standard pain treatment and slightly better than using sham needles, suggesting that the benefits of real acupuncture are due to something more than the placebo effect," writes TIME reporter Alice Park.
California board-licensed since 2006, Kristin Ebbert practices in a modern clinic in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Larchmont Village — conveniently located near Hollywood, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, Koreatown, and Downtown LA.
