Acupuncture is an ancient healing art whose use has been surfacing in US health care since the 1970’s. Its utilization in US health care is steadily increasing. Although advances in technology for the practice of medicine have been incredible, problems still exist in US health care that remain unsolved and problematic. Although an ancient healing art, some of its principles and therapies are timeless and may offer some unique approaches for viewing the patient and the healing process.

The winner of this year’s award Donald Lefeber states, “it is truly a “New Promising Era for the Acupuncture Profession.”” Acupuncture has the potential to offer new solutions for problems in health care and help achieve more optimal treatment outcomes for some of the common health conditions and ailments here in the US. We just need more education and awareness of this healing art so that acupuncture’s role in this new paradigm of health care with integrative medicine can be fulfilled. All of this, he accredits “Because it works!”
