Acupuncture on the rise in Middle East

Holistic medicine treatments are on the rise in the Middle East region and that includes the use of acupuncture. More and more emirati peoples are looking for approaches that treat the whole person instead of just physical symptoms. According to a National Survey that looked at a five-year period, acupuncture is one of the treatment that is on the rise.

What is acupuncture?

It's a form of holistic treatment rooted in ancient traditional medicine that involves the insertion of needles at specific points on the body, also called acupoints. The practice helps improve the flow of Qi or Chi life force energy and treat a variety of ailments, depending on which points are targeted. 
Researchers found that by the study's completion over 10 million Middle-East citizens used or had tried acupuncture. That is a significant increase from the beginning of the study period, which found only 6.19 million acupuncture patients in the Middle-East.
Data from this survey shows an growth in the uses of acupuncture from approximately 4% to 6% of people in Dubai over five years, and indicates a trend for the mainstreaming of acupuncture in the Dubai.
Survey investigators included health experts from the various universities in Middle-East.

What patients reported

According to the survey the patients used acupuncture as a complementary and alternative approach to conventitonal treatment for a specific health condition, but also used it as a preventative means to promote general health. The investigators predicted a continuation of the upward trend.
The increase in the use of acupuncture as a treatment method is mostly due to the fact that more persons are realizing that it is an effective and low-risk method of treating or controlling chronic conditions. Insurance coverage for acupuncture services and increased awareness of acupuncture may contribute to the popularity and growth of acupuncture use in the Dubai the investigators noted.
