Acupuncture provides effective treatment for many clinical conditions
Acupuncture is one of the most studied forms of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Acupuncture often plays an important role as part of a comprehensive, integrative medicine approach to health and healing.
Many high-quality randomized, controlled trials (RCTs) have proven acupuncture’s effectiveness for many common conditions, including menopausal hot flashes, migraine, tension-type headache, chronic daily headache, infertility, back pain, and labor induction.
Chapel Hill Doctors Integrative Health Center has two highly skilled and experienced acupuncturists, as well as an integrative medicine specialist: Drs. Wunian Chen and Helen Wang are Traditional Chinese Medicine physicians trained in China; Dr. Remy Coeytaux is a family physician, clinical scientist, medical acupuncturist, and integrative medicine specialist.
Drs. Coeytaux and Chen have conducted and published several studies of acupuncture, including RCTs of acupuncture for chronic daily headache, menopausal hot flashes, and prevention of post-dates pregnancy. Dr. Coeytaux is co-principal investigator of a large RCT of acupuncture for menopausal hot flashes funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that is currently being conducted at Chapel Hill Doctors, Wake Forest University, and Duke University.
We invite you to look at the video above, read some of our published research studies on acupuncture, and come to see one of us at Chapel Hill Doctors Integrative Health Center.
