    Anyone have any good resources about the medical necessity of cupping or moxibustion? Is there any good research out there that can support or deny this particular treatment?

    I just watched a program on cupping last month...intriguing procedure.

    Although this is somewhat an old article...I did locate this. Not sure if it will help.

    Yes, this was the only article or reference I could find. Interesting how this is from an acupuncturist, but I still cannot locate any AMA guidelines for what they can get rebimrusement for.
