Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the oldest healing systems on the planet which is in practice
for thousands of years. If an old tradition is still used today for healing we shouldn't question its
effectiveness - it's used because it is effective. This research is made as a proof, according to the
answers of 55 interviewed patients who have been treated with acupuncture treatment, that the
acupuncture treatment is effective in most of the cases. Patients were given to answer a questionnaire
with 12 questions. Patients were with different diagnosis and level of pain, but main three were:
musculoskeletal pain, autoimmune and neurological diseases. In this research are included 7 male and
43 female patients, from 20 to 70 years of age. All of them had acupuncture treatment in our clinic.
42.31% or 22 patients reported that the symptoms totally disappeared, 51.92% - 27 patients said that
the pain is almost gone and only 5.77% - 3 patients didn’t have any improvement so far. Acupuncture
as part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine is very often used in variety of conditions and is pretty
effective treatment, which gives positive results and helps the body naturally to heal on its own.
