Event Details

On behalf of  Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine 2017  Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite, Directors, Heads, Deans, Professors, Doctors, Students, Business delegates and Young researchers across the globe to attend 5th International Conference and Expo on Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, which is to be held on July 27-28, 2016 Chicago, USA. The conference highlights the theme Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine: An integrative approach for achieving Global Health Care”.

The conference proceedings include symposiums and workshops, keynote speeches, plenary talks, poster sessions and panel discussion on latest research developments in the field of Acupuncture. Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine and a major component of Traditional Chinese Medicine which involves inserting needles into the body at acupuncture points, acupuncture as an effective treatment for over forty medical problems, including allergies, respiratory conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, gynecological problems, nervous conditions and also has been used in the treatment of substance abuse and as relief for fatigue in cancer patients due to chemotherapy and other therapies.

Acupuncture, along with moxibustion, is one of the oldest practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 1972 the first legal acupuncture center in the U.S. was established in Washington DC and in 1973 the American Internal Revenue Service allowed acupuncture to be deducted as a medical expense.

The 2007 out-of-pocket expenditure for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) in United States was nearly 34 billion dollars. Visits to a health care practitioner of any kind totaled $61.5 billion, of which, $11.9 billion was spent on CAM providers such as acupuncturists and chiropractors. Over 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 80 visits in 2007. By the early 2010s, more than 14 million Americans reported having used acupuncture as part of their health care. By 2016, Complementary and Alternative Medicine industry revenue is expected to amount to around 14.3 billion U.S. dollars in the United States. Globally, the industry is estimated to be worth some $60 billion a year.
