Acupuncture: East Meets West

The Debate
"You don't have any idea what acupuncture really is, do you?' said Zoe with obvious irritation. "You think that by going on a week-end course and learning what sounds to me like trigger point therapy, you can now let yourself loose actually sticking needles in people. It's outrageous." Her voice was becoming louder and higher pitched, the angrier she became. "Don't you realise that acupuncture is a profound and complex system of medicine that has been developed by the Chinese over thousands of years. It requires years of training to begin to understand the traditional Chinese system of medicine, and you just stick a few needles in tender spots and have the cheek to call that acupuncture."
