Like you probably are, I was a curious skeptic about acupuncture when I first heard about it. I decided to try it because nothing conventional medicine had to offer was helping for my arm pain and paralysis–I had nothing left to lose. At my first appointment, I was amazed by acupuncture. As I studied it, I was profoundly changed by acupuncture. Now, I love acupuncture. But I also love conventional medicine.

Patients and friends have told me I have a knack for describing complicated medical concepts in a way they truly understand. I wrote this book using that superpower to give you the answers to all the questions I had along the way and to show you that acupuncture is not at odds with conventional therapies.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it. There will be many more where this came from…
