Now that Americans have more access to complementary care under health care reform and the expansion of Essential Health Benefits, it is time to reach out to our community partners in health and wellness. More than 3.1 million adults visited an acupuncturist in 2007, a figure that has risen sharply over the past decade. In 1997 there were 27 visits to an acupuncturist per 1,000 adults compared to 79.2 visits in 2007. To remain at the forefront of truly patient-centered integrative medical care, outreach is an important tool for building awareness about acupuncture’s safety and benefits.
