In recent years, researchers around the world are gain more insight on how acupuncture came about being one of the most effective treatment protocols for pain management. The focus is no longer trying to prove acupuncture works or not, but rather trying to gain a better understanding of how it stimulates healing and pain reduction. Although we still do not fully understand all the mechanisms of acupuncture and how they affect various aspects of mammal physiology (I say mammal because veterinarians are now treating animals with acupuncture too), the general population and medical community have recognize its undeniable therapeutic benefits and accepted it as a viable medical modality.

The most common application for acupuncture in the US is in the area of pain management, especially in managing and addressing myofascial pains resulted from sports injuries, repetitive use, and so on. Acupuncture is also an effective and commonly used method to treat allergies, hormone imbalance, and stress management.
