Acupuncture and Moxibustion, is one of the oldest practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The first legal acupuncture centre in the U.S. was established in Washington DC in 1972.  

The out-of-pocket expenditure for Complementary and Alternative Medicine in United States was nearly 34 billion dollars in 2007. Visits to a health care practitioner of any kind totalled $61.5 billion, of which, $11.9 billion was spent on Complementary and Alternative medicine providers such as chiropractors and acupuncturists. Over 3.1 million adults visited an acupuncturist in 2007, a figure that has increased sharply over the past decade, in 1997 there were 27 visits to an acupuncturist per 1,000 adults compared to 80 visits in 2007. More than 14 million Americans reported having used acupuncture as part of their health care by the early 2010s,. By 2016, Complementary and Alternative Medicine industry revenue is expected around 14.3 billion U.S. dollars in the United States. Globally, the industry is estimated to be worth some $60 billion a year.

Future of Acupuncture

 

 

 

The future for acupuncture is bright. It is cost-effective, it can provide a safe, side effect-free method. In 2007, 3.1 million people tried acupuncture, more than in 2002, to relieve discomfort caused by chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, fibromyalgia, low back pain, and other ailments. It is expected by the end of the year 2019 there will be as many as 30000 licensed acupuncturists at work in the United States. The FDA had a record of more than 20,000 licensed acupuncturists, estimated to be providing more than 10 million treatments yearly at a cost in excess of $500 million.

The future for the acupuncture profession depends on its communities of interest. The professional association needs more participation. It is no longer "what is my professional association doing for me?" We have greater, ethical and moral obligations to humanity in terms of sustaining this discipline as a community of the knowledge. It really is about what each and every one of us does in support of the profession.
