Acupuncture as Medical Treatment

"Acupuncture has been in practice for 2,000 to 5,000 years. It is no more experimental as a mode of medical treatment than is the Chinese language as a mode of communication. What is experimental is not acupuncture, but Westerner's understanding of it and their ability to utilize it properly."

– United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Andrews v. Ballard, 1980
