ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncturists insert specially made needles into specific points to stimulate the body’s natural energy. Licensed in Washington and more than 30 other states, acupuncturists work as independent providers of health care for a range of conditions from pain management to women’s health problems. In 1997, the National Institutes of Health officially recognized acupuncture as an effective treatment for pain and nausea.
